For Adaption B, I have been looking into some books that I think would be fun to create models from. I have written a short overview of the books and ideas which stem from them. I also thought of 2 poems that could create some interesting ideas but at the moment I'm not too sure what direction to take with them.
Skullduggery Pleasant - Derek Landy
A series of fantasy books following the adventures of the skeleton detective, Skullduggery Pleasant, and a teenage girl, Stephanie Edgley. In a world where magic exists and elements can be manipulated, It is possible to create a flame on the tip of your finger or ‘push’ the air and give you a super human boost during a jump. You can dry your self by manipulating the water off of your clothes or even create an air bubble around you to keep you dry in the rain by controlling the air.
