Clip clop CRASH! Yann and the Fabled Beasts gang are taking over DiscoverKelpies for a day!
Good morning Kelpies fans! We found this very mysterious blog waiting for us when we arrived at DiscoverKelpies Towers so of course we had to share it with you…
Clip clop tip tap…
Helen : What are you doing, Yann?
Yann: *tapping furiously at the keyboard* I’m writing a blog post for Discover Kelpies about those new covers for the Fabled Beast Chronicles, and the takeover day where we get to write lots of tweets…
Rona : *pokes her head round the door* Why are you writing it? I thought we agreed we were all going to draft it together.
Yann: But I’m the best at telling stories, so I’ll be the best at writing blogs too.
Helen: But you can’t even type! You usually write on scrolls and parchment and stuff.
Yann: Yes, but I’m fidnign teh lerttes quite easily. Anyway, the Fabled Beasts Chronicles are about ME. I’m clearly the hero in all four books: I kick down doors to get you lot out of trouble, I gallop all over the countryside with you on my back, and I have at least one epic fight in each book…
Rona: Don’t be daft, Yann. These books are about Helen. She uses her first aid kit to heal every one of us at various times, she solves most of the puzzles in First Aid for Fairies, she’s nearly kidnapped by the Faery Queen in Wolf Notes, she helps me compete in the sea singer contest in Storm Singing, and she saves your life at least once in Maze Running!
Catesby: *butts in* Hold on, I thought the books were about me! I get 3 chapters of my own in Maze Running. Anyway, if this is about Twitter, a bird is the obviously best character to be tweeting…
Yann: Yes, but they’re doing it on Facebook too, and we can’t really see your face past all those feathers. So I think I should be in charge of the WHOLE takeover day…
Rona: Shhh! Who’s that at the door?
*Three booming voices outside* Mwahaha. Obviously the villains are the most important characters in any adventure books! So we will have to stage a takeover of their takeover…
Helen: Oh no! It’s the Master of the Maze, the Faery Queen, and the sea-through sea monster. We’d better get out of here, now! Is there a tunnel out of Discover Kelpies Towers, do you think? We’ll have to sneak back in to write a few tweets later today…
Keep your eyes peeled, because it looks like Helen, Yann the centaur, Rona the selkie, Catesby the phoenix and the rest of the Fabled Beasts gang will be taking over our Twitter feed, Facebook page and Pinterest boards today! If they ever manage to escape the Master… (Nice of them to tell us beforehand!)
