The Incredible Book Eating Boy adapted into live show
Oliver Jeffer's award-winning children's book The Incredible Book Eating Boy has been adapted into a live show.
The performance, suitable for children aged four and above, makes use of puppetry and projection to bring the tale to life.
It tells the tale of a little boy called Henry who loves books, but unlike most children, he loves to eat them too.
As his appetite for books grows he realises the more literature he eats the smarter he gets.
But soon he realises book-eating is not the healthiest of diets.
It all takes place within Henry's own bedroom, providing books to read, activity packs and even the chance for viewers to meet Henry's goldfish Ginger.
The book has been developed by Bootworks Theatre and aims to be an exciting adventure for youngsters.
Each show lasts for five minutes and is performed for two people at a time, with 30 repeats per day.
There must be one child and an accompanying adult or one adult at a time per performance.
Anybody who books tickets for the Saturday performance can also take part in a free workshop with the cast of the show.
Visitors are invited to write and share stories with Henry and his friends during the workshop.
There are also opportunities to illustrate your own book, with the activities being suitable for four to seven-year-olds.
