The Darwin books have gone missing from the Birmingham Library! Agent Naturalis Inquisitivus has been hired to solve the mystery, but she’ll need a team of Animal Agents to crack this tricky case. Can you help?

This drama workshop explores the 2017 Reading Challenge theme of ‘Animal Agents’ , with facts and inspiration drawn from the ‘Would You Rather’ book series by Camilla de la Bedoyere and Mel Howells. The children are invited to join Agent Naturalis Inquisitivus as she tries to solve the mystery of the missing Darwin books from Birmingham library. They’ll help her by sharing their own favourite animal characters from books they have read. Then, by becoming Animal Agents themselves, the children will use drama, movement, role play, song and games to solve the case while learning about animals and their unique superpowers.
