The Tiger Who Came To Tea Live

Review of The Tiger Who Came To Tea Live at Cadogan Hall, August 2016.  Confession time. I’ve never liked this book I find the plot rather odd. I mean, why would they just let the tiger eat all their food and drink? Why be so submissive?…

Tiddler And Other Terrific Tales by Scamp Theatre

“Tiddler? Tiddler? TIDDLER’S LATE!” Tiddler by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler (them of The Gruffalo fame) is my absolute favourite book to read to the girls at the moment. Seren loves it as there is a mermaid in it. Imogen loves that my narrative…
