And judging from the reaction of the youngsters, we don't have to worry too much — they love their stories.
The brainchild of the Hay Festival organisers, with input from the Met, this year the pupils were treated to some top tips and advice from authors Saci Lloyd, Cathy Brett and Tanya Byrne.
Saci, at one point, threw out the question 'name me a weapon that could be used to kill somebody?'
An imaginative answer came flying back from the floor: 'a KitKat.'
Saci and the children then worked up their plot, whodunit style, positing that if the unlikely weapon were poisoned, or perhaps dropped from the Eiffel Tower, it could in fact prove fatal.
All in all this was an entertaining event which got the creative juices flowing and showed that though they might be the Xbox and Twitter generation, children can still call upon, and be excited, by an active imagination.
