The Children of Castle Rock by Natasha Farrant - The Great Library Orienteering Challenge

The Children of Castle Rock

‘There would be at least two betrayals, a few lies and a couple of near-death experiences before they could really call themselves friends’

Alice Mistlethwaite has been packed off to an unusual boarding school in Scotland.

Everyone is talking about the Great Orienteering Challenge, where students are sent off, unsupervised, for three days! Alice sees her chance…

She just needs to persuade her teammates, rule-abiding Jesse and mischief-maker Fergus, to follow her across the wild Scottish highlands and islands, in search of a legendary castle…

Faber Children’s have created ‘The Great Library Orienteering Challenge’ for children to enjoy discovering new things like Alice. The fantastic activity sheet asks children to solve a mystery in the book by using clues to find books in their library.

The publisher would love to see how you use this activity. You can do this on social media using #CastleRock by tagging FaberChildrens, readingagency and the author @NatashaFarrant1.
