Event Details


Join one of Britain’s best loved story-makers, Michael Morpurgo, for an insightful event around the inspiration for his new book Owl or Pussycat?

For the first time, he is joined by the fantastically talented illustrator Polly Dunbar. Together they talk about how the book came into being and the joy of seeing the illustrations join the words. This new book is particularly important as it is based on a true story from Michael’s childhood.

This extra special storytime event with the author of such enduring classics as War Horse and Private Peaceful includes a full reading of the book by Michael and live illustrations by Polly created in front of your very eyes.
