Our Instagrammer in residence 2014 was Emma Healey, who hacked reading with five groups of young people across the country.
Emma is the bestselling author of Elizabeth is Missing, a book binder and the creator of amazing book-inspired stop motion animation.
Emma said about the project: ‘I’ve discovered stories I might never have read and focused on details I might otherwise have overlooked, and I’ve had a lot of fun finding new ways to create videos in order to represent each book.’
Check out the videos Emma has created so far below. The first is based on Ylenia from Gateshead’s response to What’s Up With Jody Barton? by Hayley Long. The second is a response to +_Cos You’re My Sister_ by Lois Rock, briefed by young people in St Helens. The third was briefed by a group in Kent based on The Positively Last Performance by Geraldine McCaughrean. The last brief came from a group in Accrington, who chose The Story of Tracy Beaker by Jacqueline Wilson.
