Description

Charlie Cook's Favourite Book is both entertaining and original - a sure-fire winner from the unparalleled picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. Julia Donaldson has written some of the world's best-loved children's books, including modern classics The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which together have sold over 25 million copies worldwide and have been translated into over one hundred languages. There are eleven different books in this story, and my first idea was to have eleven different illustrators – one for each book-within-a-book! This was the last book In the Julia Donaldson series I brought my grandson , they love them and are so well illustrated … as is this one .

As in the book, there is also a ghost carrying her head, who appears in the show with ‘haunted house’ sound effects, but she then puts her head back on, settles down to read a book and doesn’t seem scary anymore. Julia is also the author of the young fiction series, PRINCESS MIRROR-BELLE, and is much in demand for her brilliant events for children at schools, libraries and literary festivals.This isn’t an interactive show, but we always welcome vocal responses from young audiences, and you can join in by clapping along to the songs. Further books illustrated by Axel include Room on the Broom, Stick Man, Zog and The Smeds and the Smoos – all of which have been made into much-loved animated films by Magic Light Pictures. A show aimed at two-year olds would have some differences – those shows are carefully made to hold their attention for the duration, and not to be unsettling for them.

This play is based on the original book Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book -Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. There will be up to 70 people watching the show (sometimes more if you come when there are school groups). The show features a dragon puppet who roars loudly and quite a big crocodile puppet, but these are both friendly characters. From kings and queens to aliens and ghosts, there's something for everyone in Charlie's amazing book of adventure!

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. They have brought many of my books to life on stage, and they do so creatively whilst remaining faithful to the books. Charlie Cook is reading a book about a pirate captain, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading about a knight, who is reading about a frog .
