Ten-word Tiny Tales - digital pack and book trailers

“Invite me in,” she says, outside my tenth storey window…

Is it possible to spin a tale using just ten words? In this unique and magnificent compendium designed to spark the imagination, Joseph Coelho brings us stories of underwater worlds, bears in outer space, and portals to places unknown… all in just ten words! Each tale has been paired with one of the finest present-day illustrators – and, together, the words and pictures will create a space for creativity as young readers imagine how the story might unravel. They might even be inspired to pen a ten-word tiny tale of their own!

You can watch a book trailer below and another on YouTube.

We would love to see you enjoying the resources on social media using #TenWordTinyTales and tagging WalkerBooksUK, JosephACoelho and readingagency.
