Story Explorers: our new podcast for kids, by kids!

Do you have any 7 to 11 year-olds at home? We’ve created a brand new daily podcast called Story Explorers with Pixiu, which you can listen to on the national children’s radio station Fun Kids.

The series is hosted by CBBC’s Ben Shires and each week story explorers from different primary schools will interview, chat with and challenge a top children’s author.

We have a fantastic line up of authors who will be joining us in the next six weeks: Cressida Cowell (How to Train Your Dragon series, Hodder Children’s Books), Eoin Colfer  (Artemis Fowl), Greg James and Chris Smith (Kid Normal), Katherine Rundell (Book of Hopes), Onjali Q. Raúf (The Boy at the Back of the Class) and Lauren Child (Clarice Bean).

These podcasts are no longer available.
