Aileen and Watson, The Lost Book Welcome to The Lost Book!

The Lost Book is a collaborative adventure in storytelling. It's taking place online and anyone can join in. At its heart is an animated web series: the adventures of investigative journalist, and BookCrosser, Aileen Adler, who is trying to solve the crime of a missing book. Episode 3, the second of five episodes to be written by the public, was launched this month. It gave Scotswoman Aileen her first glimpse of the book thief, thanks to her dog Watson's keen nose - watch the story so far. Right now we're working on the plot for episode 4 with help from all the visitors to the website - it will be launched on Friday, 15 May 2009.

Where the story goes next remains in your hands. You can suggest plot developments by visiting www.thelostbook.net now. Each month between now and July the storylines will be pulled together into the next episode, animated and published online.

There are loads of ways you can get involved and it won't cost you anything. Please help us to write the story for the web series - make suggestions or vote on other people's ideas. You can also join our special guest writer Jasper Fforde and reconstruct a stolen book in our weekly microstory competition. You can enter our soundtrack competition by creating your own music for the web series. You can even produce your own animation.

And, you can read this book, tell us what you thought of it, give it away, and follow its journey.

The Lost Book is a partner project to the Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature Trust's 2009 reading campaign, The Lost World Read 2009, which is using free books, online resources and events to get people reading The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle. The Lost World Read is the largest collaborative reading project ever seen in the UK. We're extending the reading campaign, thanks to the generosity of project sponsors Canongate, by giving away other free books throughout The Lost Book.

The Changeling is the story of thirteen-year-old Tom Curdie, a Glaswegian boy on probation for theft. Originally published in 1958, this new paperback edition from Canongate includes an afterword by Andrew Marr.

So join in, wherever you are, and have fun!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

This was left on the bookshelf on the mantlepiece in the main bar. It's on the right-hand end of the books, next to the "bookend" (an empty bottle of Hendricks gin). It hadn't been picked up by the end of the evening as it's not easy to spot - you'd only find it if you were actually looking at the books, and most people don't. So, go hunting!

If you've found this book - welcome to BookCrossing! I hope you enjoy The Changeling and then pass it on to continue its journey. It'd be great to find out where it has travelled to and read your review. You can stay completely anonymous if you prefer, or you can join BookCrossing (it's free) if you'd like to take part in this booklovers' community.

To find out more about the adventure of The Lost Book, go to the website at www.thelostbook.net and to read more about The Lost World and the reading campaign check out www.lostworldread.com.
