Tall Tales - Children, Family, Young Adult & Schools Events

“The world is dark, and light is precious. Come closer,
dear reader. You must trust me. I am telling you a story.”

Kate DiCamillo, The Tale of Despereaux

“Some of the greatest children’s writers and artists weave their spellbinding magic! From American powerhouses RJ Palacio and Kate DiCamillo to Norwegian illustrator Ella Okstad, Irish picturebook maker Chris Haughton and bestsellers Francesca Simon, Robin Stevens and Andy Stanton, and much more… there’s something for every young and young at heart reader.”
