Christopher William Hill Learning Resources

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! Christopher William Hill's darkly brilliant Tales from Schwartzgarten series opens with Osbert the Avenger, in which a precocious young boy decides that enough is enough and fights back against the city's cruel elite. This resource will help you design some fun, creative learning around the book for your class or book group. Activities include:

  • Research the history of your home town;
  • Create your own unlikely hero;
  • Investigate the fascinating behaviour of ravens and other British birds.

This resource has been created to support the Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour with Christopher William Hill. Check out the Touring homepage for more information about which local authorities the tour is visiting next!
