Award winning author-illustrator Polly Dunbar is set to be the star of a magical free event on Thursday 25th April, which will be broadcast live over the internet to tens of thousands of primary school pupils across the UK.
Young fans of Polly’s books are invited to tune in as she brings her latest picture book, Arthur’s Dream Boat, to life with a little help from the Long Nose puppets, a variety of charismatic hand puppets, full body costumes and masks, all with huge personalities. This event is suitable for children aged 4-7.
Primary schools, families and, of course, kids will love this free Authors Live event, run by Scottish Book Trust and BBC Scotland Learning. The live event will be streamed live from the BBC Scotland Learning website on Thursday 25th April at 11am but will be available to watch again later the same day at: www.bbc.co.uk/authorslive.
Speaking about her upcoming Authors Live event, Polly said:
“I’m very excited that the Arthur’s Dream Boat puppet show will beamed in to hundreds of classrooms across the UK! We approach making our puppet shows as though we are making a giant picture book; each scene change is like the turn of the page. With theatre you can bring a book to life with many different layers: music, movement, lighting and of course the key part to bringing a story to life…a live audience!”
