The Scoop. The Fire

Martin Widmark, Erik Fichtelius , illustrated by Kim W Andersson

A new series of books that focuses on children’s rights to examine and influence the world they live in. So join a group of 11-year-olds as they start their own online newspaper, the consequences of which you would never had expected. A series to talk about, and be inspired by, for anyone who likes to write and create their own stories!

Hugo, Maryam and Johanna run the school’s online magazine. When they publish a report about bullying at school, the headmaster suddenly decides to shut down the entire newspaper. It seems that he just wants the school newspaper to write about positive things. Nothing controversial! Suddenly they stand without publisher and have to think about what it means to be dependent on someone. They think it should in no way affect their reporting!

The friends can’t be stopped. They find a new way of blogging, outside the school’s website. But then they have to face a new problem. The house where all their material is saved is burning up! And it seems like the fire is raging with full force…
