Story Explorers Radio ShowA brand new children’s podcast series Story Explorers has been launched which is all about stories for 7 to 11-year-olds. The series, hosted by CBBC presenter Ben Shires, will feature a different children’s author and group of school children each week. Budding young podcasters from Years 5 and 6 will interview and chat virtually with top authors about their work, the stories they love and also take part in fun games together. Each interview will be broken down into five episodes, each five minutes in length and a new episode will be released weekdays at 6.15pm throughout November and December. The fantastic line up of authors also includes: Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl series, Penguin) Greg James and Chris Smith (Kid Normal series, Bloomsbury Children’s) Katherine Rundell (Book of Hopes, Bloomsbury Children’s) Onjali Q. Raúf (The Boy at the Back of the Class, Orion Children's Books) Lauren Child (Clarice Bean series, Orchard Books). Visit each weekday for new episodes.
