Bumbum Bees, Toilet Sharks and Things That Go Bump in the Night with Chris Judge

Tuesday, 27 Oct
Free, booking required

Create spooky ghosts, ticklish spiders and friendly Beasts at our live, family-friendly draw along. All you need is some paper and a pencil – stand by to create some fiendish Hallowe’en creatures! 

Chris might even tell you about the toilet sharks from the Danger is Everywhere books, and where he came up with the idea for his new book, Eggcorns: From Bumbum Bees to Jellycopters. Chris is an illustrator, artist and children's picture book author, whose very first picture book The Lonely Beast went on to become Supersavers Irish Children's Book of the Year. He is the author of Brian and the Vikings and Brian and the Giant. Chris illustrated Roddy Doyle’s children’s book Brilliant and collaborated with comedian and author David O’Doherty on the smash hit, Danger is Everywhere! 

Suitable for Age 3+
