We’ve got the creators of two beautiful new kids books from Pan Macmillian with us on Thursday the 3rd of October. Join us with Sharon King-Chai (lauching Starbird), Elli Woollard and Marta Altés (launching Aesops Fables) between 7 and 9 pm for a launch party!
‘In this wonderfully illustrated collection retold in rhyming verse, meet the vain peacock and the wise crane, discover what happens to the boy who cried wolf one too many times and find out what the bear whispered to the traveller. Aesop's Fables are one of the enduring classics of children's literature and are a firm family favourite.
Aesop's Fables retold by Elli Woollard combine stunning illustrations from the award-winning Marta Altés with the brilliant rhyming talents of Elli Woollard. This collection is one children and adults alike will truly treasure.’
Sharon King-Chai’s ‘Starbird is an original fable about freedom and love. This unique book shimmers with shiny silver foil throughout pages filled with stunning illustrations of plants and animals as the magical Starbird seeks to escape the clutches of the Moon King.
Starbird's songs weave the richest dreams and delight all who hear him, but when the Moon King traps him in a cage as gift for his daughter, the colour and life in his voice begin to drip away. What follows is a story with the feel of a timeless myth, with the message that captivity dims even the brightest star.
A heartfelt, lyrical story, and an exquisite gift for any child or adult.’
We hope you’ll join us on Thursday the 3rd of October with these three wonderful creators, from 7 till 9 pm, but if you can’t make it and would like a signed copy of Aesop’s Fables or Starbird they’re both available to pre-order on our website, just click on the titles above.
