Based on the original book Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book.
Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.
A Little Angel Theatre, The Lowry and Rose Theatre co-production
Charlie loves reading. Especially books about pirates. But his sister hates it – it’s boring! Can Charlie convince her that reading is fun? Perhaps if she read a book about a pirate, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading a book about a knight…
Come and delve into a range of books with Charlie Cook, brought to life with puppetry and enchanting songs, and perhaps you will be able to help his sister discover the wonderful world inside a book…
