Video Watch now: Tom Nicoll and Play Scotland

Tom Nicoll, author of the Level Up book series, teams up with our friends at Play Scotland to look at popular playground games, why we love play so much and its impact on our health and wellbeing.

Growing up, Tom Nicoll was obsessed with two things – books and video games. With the Level Up book series, he has finally managed to combine these two interests by writing books about video games.

Level Up tells the story of video game obsessed Flo, who gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself INSIDE her favourite game. Turns out, virtual reality isn't as much fun when it's not so virtual.
