Just Jack by Kate Scott

Inventions and Recipes with Kate Scott

Meet author Kate Scott and find out about her brilliant book Just Jack, as well as Roald Dahl's classic tale James and the Giant Peach.

You'll find out a few things these stories have in common - like some super inventive thinking.

You'll then come up with zany inventions yourself and imagine a disgusting crafty menu inspired by both books. Brussles sprout ice cream anyone?
