Our story follows the adventures of three children who, while all misfits, each have special talents. Talents they can’t quite control yet…
* Oliver is an orphan who loves to draw
* Celia is a confident and gifted writer
* Eugene is a sci-fi nerd who loves making gadgets
The children win a trip to Weirdwood Manor to meet their reclusive hero — the eccentric writer and inventor, Arthur Weirdwood. Naturally, there’s also a robot butler, a ghost boy who haunts the Manor, and a librarian with more than a couple secrets of her own to hide.
Full of mystery and adventure, our story aims to inspire children to celebrate their uniqueness, recognize their talents, and embrace their imagination.
“The Incredible Tales of Weirdwood Manor” was born out of 5 complementary objectives:
* Tell great a story
* Foster a love of reading
* Promote playful interaction
* Challenge the mind
* Inspire creativity
But most of all, we wanted to bring ‘play’ to storytelling.
