showcase: STORYMAKERS LAB by Super Cool Books

Jimmy Leong, Chief Operating Officer of Brain Bytes introducing the Super Cool Books iPad reading app 
to students in Malaysia

These are some of our past STORYMAKERS LAB community projects, where we use our storymaking resources to engage young readers through fiction writing workshops, book parties, story hacking sessions, etc. Thanks to all our partners and also everyone who turned up and shared the fun. For updates about future events, do join our Facebook page.



/ / / / / School of Magical Stories: this is the main framework that we use to design new stories and develop them into books. We've made the complete process available as an ebook written for middle grade readers, so that writers, teachers and kids everywhere can also use this to develop their story skills
