Literacy Trust Euro 2012 – Daily cliff-hanger story: The Great Euro 2012 Swindle
The Great Euro 2012 Swindle is the sequel to Black Op, the first book in Tom Palmer’s new spies and football Squad series. The story will be influenced by the events of Euro 2012, and a new chapter will be written by Tom every evening after the games have been played. Also, every Friday, children will be invited to vote on what will happen next in the story.
Tom has written, and we have published, the first four chapters of the story already. The next chapter will be published at 8am on Monday 18 June. The story will come to an exciting climax on 2 July. Click on the Download link below to read the story.
