What is it?

As this year's summer reading challenge is inspired by the works of Roald Dhal, this hack wants you and your fellow readers to create or discuss a factory in which your favourite character from your current book would like to work in.

What sort of space will you need?

A minimal space as you only need to create/draw or discuss an imaginary factory.

When could it take place?

During the summer reading challenge preferably or anytime!


With a group or alone with a piece of paper and pen.
