The Children’s Bookshow is delighted to be presenting multi-award-winning picture book author and illustrator Catherine Rayner at The Hull New Theatre on 4th October 2021.
Catherine has written over 20 books for children and illustrated many more for other well-known authors including Julia Donaldson and Michael Morpurgo. Her books have been adapted for musicals, television and theatre.
Her second book, Harris Finds His Feet, won the 2009 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal, and Catherine has now been shortlisted five times for this prestigious award. All children attending the performance will receive a free copy of Harris Finds His Feet (RRP £6.99) to take home and keep!
Aimed primarily at school groups, but also open to home-educating families, this hour-long performance offers a superb opportunity for children in KS1 to engage with a high-profile artist and receive a beautiful free picture book, all with the added excitement of attending a theatre venue.
Young children will be captivated as Catherine brings to life her distinctive characters through live drawing and delightful, interactive story reading. They will be inspired as she explains all about her working life, the story behind her characters and how she creates her picture books. With plenty of opportunity for audience participation, this is a unique chance to hear one of our most exciting young picture book creators talk about her work.
Hull New Theatre is one of the UK's premier touring venues and features the best in musical, opera, ballet, drama, children's shows and one night performances.
