The concept is simple: one book, by one author, is selected for the whole community to read, explore, discuss and creatively engage with.
Familiar to radio audiences as the hosts of Radio 1's Greg James Show and its accompanying podcast That's What He Said, Greg James and Chris Smith's Kid Normal tells the story of a boy who accidentally enrols in a school for children with superpowers.
Chris Smith's literary career so far includes winning the H E Bates Short Story Competition 1981 (under 10s section) with his tale Where Are the Brandy Snaps?
The idea for writing their first children's book arose from the pair enjoying creating characters together on their podcast, such as the Brandy Butter Monster or the receptionists at CERN.
The plot concerns Murph Cooper, who feels out of depth in his new school after his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake.
Unlike his fellow students, who can all control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever.
And not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans.…
Greg James and Chris Smith said: "We know that Brighton is full of superpowers: seagull evasion, shingle navigation and dolphin racing, to name but three.
"And now we're looking forward to adding a few new ones with the help of your awesome powers of creativity.
"We hope you enjoy meeting Murph and his friends in Kid Normal, and we can't wait to meet you all to make up some new stories!"
Throughout the project, participating classes will receive free weekly e-bulletins which will include bite-size Kid Normal literacy resources and fun activities to complete.
