CHILDREN’S AUTHOR EVENTS Julia Donaldson, Mon 14 Jun; Catherine MacPhail, Mon 14 Jun; Margaret Ryan, Tue 15 Jun, GilmorehillG12, Glasgow
Where would you find Cheesy Peasmint flavour ice cream, vegetarian“ vampire and a snail who hitches a lift on the tail of a whale? The answer
is easy for fans of Julie Bertagna’s Ice Cream Machine, Eye Tooth by Frank Rodgers and Julia Donaldson, since they are all well-loved characters from their books. But during the West End Festival, all these authors and their creations can be found in one place, as part of a series of children’s events at Gilmorehill. The line-up of readings also includes Catherine MacPhail, author of the young adults’ books
Underworld and Another Me, and Margaret Ryan with her tales of Hover
Boy and Airy Fairy.
These promise to be fun and interactive events for children, catering for
a variety of different age groups between the ages of three and 11. One of the highlights will be Julia Donaldson’s performance of the Snail and the Whale, her story of two very different sized creatures travelling
around the world together. As well as being known for her clever rhyming
tales, Glasgow resident Donaldson loves to perform, having spent many years busking as a penniless student and writing songs for children’s television. ‘1’" be acting out the story using an inﬂatable whale and some foam snails, then I’ll do another of my books, The Magic Paintbrush, which is based on a Chinese folk tale and involves the audience playing some of the characters’.
