FaBo Story is over ... or is it?

We promised it would be a wild ride! Eighteen hairy chapters later and the first FaBo Story was complete - thanks to you.

If you haven't read it yet, go and find out about the heroes of our story - Remy and Lewis - alien gorillas, exploding cupcakes, intergalactic police ... oh yeah, I shouldn't give it all away. Go here and read it for yourself. Make sure you read the winning students' chapters down the right-hand side.

Thanks to all the kids and teachers who took part in FaBo Story, whether you read it, wrote for it, or helped to keep your kids motivated to follow it. There are some brilliant young writers out there.


FaBo Story will continue. The whistle will blow for the new story - FaBo Story 2 - in term two of 2011. Angus Smith, the 13 year-old student who won the final prize this year, will kick off the first chapter. But in the meantime, we're going to share writing tips, showcase great examples of writing, publish photos of the people who took part in FaBo Story, and YOU can share what YOU know.

Remember the story's not over till the mad lady swings. Off you go, Mrs Jones!
