Norman No Mates

Marketing is an amazing thing. We are surrounded by it. We ingest it though every orifice every minute of every day. Yet sometimes, I really like what it does. Meet Norman…

Some of you may have been lucky enough – like me – to see ParaNorman at the flicks. It was G.E.N.I.U.S. It’s about a misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead, takes on ghosts, zombies and grown-ups to save his community from a centuries-old curse. Take a peek..

The marketing machine behind the movie at Universal Pictures got thinking – we ALL have local legends, landmarks and people that are fascinating and unique to our community. With the help of Norman and his out-of-the-ordinary tale – ParaNorman Local Legends – a schools and libraries initiative, was born. It will brilliantly encourage children to explore themes such as community, local history, legends, creative writing, research, individuality and much more.

In conjunction with educational experts, Universal Pictures have designed complete lesson plans for Year 5 & 6 teachers and legendary event packs for libraries, giving them a unique opportunity to inspire children to take a closer look at their local landmarks and community. Search and ye shall find, and all that jazz…

Every school and library participating will also have the chance to win some extraordinarily good prizes. If you think this is something your kids should get busy with, please mention it to their teacher and Universal will sort them out!
