Books I am proud of.

It’s been a busy few weeks for book writing using the TooManyCooks workflow. We’re still waiting for some to come back from the printers – but I thought that I might show you some of ones that have!

You remember, for example, the wonderful guest post we had from Jim Dean of Croydon College? Well that book evolved into this:

I said ‘semi-busy’, which is true, but the reason it was only semi-busy was that I was only mainly involved in Croydon book – the next book ‘camp’ was run by people I’d trained and it’s the first time there’s been a book where I’ve never even set eyes on the writers.  That would make it particularly special to me, but it’s already pretty special.

It’s called ‘The Mystery of the Locket’,  which was ran by some undergraduates from Keele University.  They went to an SEN school to run the project.  The group was eight students and includes diagnoses of epilepsy, dyslexia, Tourette’s, diabetes as well as six diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder.

…and that wrote a book.  A really good one.  When I got the phone call on Friday that everything had worked I was so very very happy.   Here’s the book:
