At Schoolhouse Escapes, each module consists of an original opening story, formatted as a picture book and written exclusively for Schoolhouse Escapes. We are sometimes asked where you can buy these books, but for now, they are available only as part of your escape game experience with your students.
We hope you enjoy hearing them as much as we enjoyed writing them!
