SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. Join Mark Lemon for an interactive story time session this February half-term.
Mark Lemon is an author and cofounder of Lemon Drop Books. Lemon Drop started because both Mark and his wife noticed a lack of children’s books featuring non-white protagonists. Mark wanted to find books that his mixed-race kids could look at and relate to and imagine themselves being a part of. So, in an effort to diversify children’s literature, he created his own.
Otis Lemon and his Amazing Adventures are magical tales about a young boy from Bristol. Each week his inventor uncle, Professor Poopy, invites Otis to his workshop to try out and experience a new fantastic invention. From the spectacular submarine, to the magic flying scooter, Otis and the Professor experience these amazing adventures together.
Thea Lemon and her Fantastic Fairy Godmothers are magical stories about an ordinary girl from Bristol. Thea’s parents own a café, which is so busy at the weekends that Thea is sent to the countryside to stay with her terrible aunt, Fellula, who Thea secretly calls craggy bottom. Each weekend she is visited by a new and fantastic fairy godmother, bringing her dreams to life.
Mark will be reading from his unique stories and getting children involved with colouring and activities – there will also be a free goody bag for each child to take home!
After the story join Let’s Make Art to make your very own wooden peg person. All materials are provided for your little artist to create their own skier ready for the slopes!
