The Children’s Book Council of Australia celebrates it’s 70th anniversary in 2015, with Children’s Book Week on again from 22-28 August. The theme this year is Books Light Up Our World.
We hosted a performance of The Book Show by Splash Theatre Company at the Golden Grove Arts Centre today, for over 300 local school students.
The books they brought to life included:
The Book with No Pictures by B.J.Novak (one of our favourites!)
The Pointless Leopard by Colas Gutman
The Ghost of Miss Annabel Spoon by Aaron Blabey,
Redback on the Toilet Seat by Slim Newton.
The actors also held a Q&A session after the performance, answering some great questions about how the show was written, how long it took to rehearse and what other books they would have liked to include in the show.
Thanks to Splash Theatre Company’s Andrew, Ezra and Mariana for a great show!
Happy Book Week everyone!
