Alex Bell: Be a Polar Explorer

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Are you ready for an expedition to the frozen wilderness? Hear about the Polar Bear Explorers and plan your own trip at a writing adventure.

When Stella's father is kidnapped by a witch, it's up her and her faithful friends Beanie, Shay and Ethan (and reluctant new friend Gideon) to get him back. But no one ever returns from Witch Mountain. They'll have to plan carefully!

Alex Bell, author of The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club leads new explorers as they plan their clubs, kit and everything they need to write their own characters' fantastical exploits.
