Tickets are priced at £5.00 per child, and accompanying adults are free. The session lasts for approximately one hour.
Using Rabbityness, her first published book, Jo will take the audience on a creative journey to show them how to make a book. From early roughs and sketch books full of ideas to miniature mock up books to the finished work, Jo
will offer children a fascinating insight into the world of a picture book illustrator.
With lots of audience participation, Jo will read her stories Little Home Bird and Chimpanzees for Tea and the children will be able to see her illustrations on a large screen as they listen to the stories. Join us for a fun and inspiring afternoon of stories
With confirmation of the theatre booking schools will receive two free copies of Jo's book to use as a classroom resource.
