As if there’s not enough happening already, now your little book worms can enjoy storytelling and adventures with some of the best known literary creations in children’s book.
<>Take a look below at what the Lollibop world of literature has to offer…
Mayhem with Dennis the Menace!
Join Steven Butler, author of Diary of Dennis the Menace, for a sneaky peak into the chaotic life of the naughtiest boy in the Beano! Expect lots of fun and games (maybe even a prank or two!) as Steven brings to life the world of Dennis the Menace.
Hop along to the charming interactive puppet show where The Tale of Peter Rabbit is brought to life. See Peter escape from Mr McGregor’s Garden, and help him on his journey.
Spot the Dog
Perfect for pre-schoolers who love to follow the fun adventures of Spot the Dog, join in the numerous storytelling activities throughout the day, which also includes colouring and activity sheets and a chance to meet Spot himself!
Join Ladybird Live for a series of events to promote and celebrate the joy of storytelling for pre-schoolers and parents. The bespoke activities include professional storytelling, expert advice for parents and arts and crafts that encourage children to engage with the stories and enter a world of imagination and fun.
Adele Minchin, Publicity Director at Penguin Children’s, said: “Ladybird and Puffin are delighted to be bringing a whole host of magical storytelling events to this year’s LolliBop Festival. We look forward to welcoming families to join in all the fun of reading for pleasure and meeting many much-loved characters.”
The new LolliBooks area will also feature a Lolli Library. Pull up a hay bale and spend some quiet time reading from much loved classics to new releases, all aimed at children up to the age of 10.
