We worked with GW Theatre Company and writer Mike Harris to turn a touring issue based schools production into an online animation, which has just been launched in schools nationwide.
Mr Shapeshifter controls all the stories in the world, including the one Jack and Jess are stuck in.
The only way to escape is to turn his story into their story…but how can they do that when Jess hates Jack, and Jack can’t even remember what his story was?
Two very different kids band together to defeat a manipulative super-villain who wants to steal their childhood so he can live forever.
Mr Shapeshifter is a contemporary fairy tale for 10 – 11 year olds about the ways some adults abuse childrens’ trust and how children can protect themselves.
“The vision for the Mr Shapeshifter project has always been to reach as many 9-11 year old children as possible and to make a significant contribution to help keep them safe from sexual exploitation and abuse.”

We also used stills from the film to illustrate a book based on the show.
There is a package of resources available to help teachers in schools to work with this important subject.
