  • Illustrations and text were designed by Year 4 pupils at St. Martin's Primary School, Cranbrook. They thought about how best to tell the story visually and created collages that were then passed on to illustrators, and wrote sentences that best described the action.

"This company understands how to perform children's theatre in a way that isn't dumbed-down or diluted. The performances are vibrant, rich, detailed and challenging - they expect the children to 'get it' and they do. The benefit is that we as adults can enjoy the show just as much"
