Welcome to Haarville — if you’ve arrived, you’ve survived. Off the grid and not on the maps, it’s a place shrouded in fog and steeped in pungent pongs. Journey with author Justin Davies into the mysterious world of Manx Fearty, a twelve-year-old orphan who is about to lose his family’s perpetual device shop to some sinister, suspicious newcomers. Justin shares how and why he became a children’s author and explains some of the ways he created the mysterious, murky world of his new book, Haarville. You’ll also learn how you can use all the senses to create exciting story settings of your own. There’ll even be a chance to devise your very own fishy, sea-weedy menu – hope you’re feeling hungry!
