Morecambe Library is inviting children to join their mission.
To mark the launch of ‘Young Sherlock Holmes’ author Andrew Lane’s new series, the library is hosting a ‘Lost Worlds’ beast treasure hunt and there’s some great prizes on offer.
Children’s author Andrew has just published ‘Lost Worlds’, the first book in his second series inspired by Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle. ‘Lost Worlds’ takes its lead from Conan Doyle’s, ‘The Lost World’.
The series centres around Calum Challenger – a boy with a mission to track down supposedly mythological creatures and capture their DNA. But while Calum and his friends want to save these beings, an aggressive pharmaceutical company wants to wipe them out.
In this fast-paced, high-tech story, Calum and a group of misfit mates – a computer hacker, a freerunner, an ex-marine and a girl with a very big chip on her shoulder – criss-cross the globe, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of their enemy.
To take part in the treasure hunt, children search for five floor stickers within the library and collect a unique code featured on each one.
Once they’ve collected a code they can visit www. thelostworlds.co.uk where they are in with the chance of winning prizes including books, posters, Hexbugs and an iPad Mini. The website will also reveal exclusive content from Lane’s latest book.
‘Lost Worlds’ is published by Macmillan Children’s Books, £5.99.
