Where storytelling and play come together...

Created with bestselling, multi award-winning author and illustrator Rob Biddulph and Discover Story Centre. This interactive world of play and storytelling has something for everyone aged 1-8 and their families.

Welcome to The 100 Story Hotel. Please, come on in!

At The 100 Story Hotel there are all sorts of guests; lions and tigers, dinosaurs and bears. Some sausage dogs are having a party on the hotel beach. And that’s to say nothing of the dedicated staff. The porters are penguins, the housekeeping team is headed up by a handy octopus – and you’ve already met the polar bear concierge.

An interactive world...

There’s just one problem at this wonderful establishment – although the hotel is usually full of 100 amazing stories, one story has just gone missing! We desperately need your help to find the naughty culprit. Can you follow the clues and track them down?
