About this deal

She was the UK Children’s Laureate 2011–13 and has been honoured with a CBE for Services to Literature.

Charlie Cook is reading a book about a pirate captain, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading about a knight, who is reading about a frog . From kings and queens to aliens and ghosts, there's something for everyone in Charlie's amazing book of adventure! The only difficult bit is the fact that the images contain text such as a leaflet or news paper article so it had to be explained that it wasn't part of the story. There are eleven different books in this story, and my first idea was to have eleven different illustrators – one for each book-within-a-book!

They will provide a linguistic and artistic interpretation of the show for people who are D/deaf or for whom BSL is their preferred language. A show aimed at two-year olds would have some differences – those shows are carefully made to hold their attention for the duration, and not to be unsettling for them.

This play is based on the original book Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book -Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. This edition features the classic story with a stunning, redesigned cover and beautiful finish, making it a must-have addition to the bookshelves of all Donaldson and Scheffler fans - big and small!

As in the book, there is also a ghost carrying her head, who appears in the show with ‘haunted house’ sound effects, but she then puts her head back on, settles down to read a book and doesn’t seem scary anymore. Her other books include The Hospital Dog illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, The Christmas Pine illustrated by Victoria Sandøy and the hugely successful What the Ladybird Heard adventures illustrated by Lydia Monks. Yoto Says: A dizzying adventure that immerses us in a book inside a book inside a book… all for the love of stories! Julia is also the author of the young fiction series, PRINCESS MIRROR-BELLE, and is much in demand for her brilliant events for children at schools, libraries and literary festivals.

This isn’t an interactive show, but we always welcome vocal responses from young audiences, and you can join in by clapping along to the songs. He has enjoyed particular success in his collaborations with Julia Donaldson, for which their many awards include the Smarties Gold Prize, the WH Smith Children's Book of the Year, the Blue Peter Best Book to Read Aloud and Children's Audio Book of the Year. This was the last book In the Julia Donaldson series I brought my grandson , they love them and are so well illustrated … as is this one .

Our shows for this age group have storylines that can be followed and enjoyed by 3-4-year olds, but may also use slightly more complex ideas, humour, dialogue or song lyrics that older children will get more out of. The show features a dragon puppet who roars loudly and quite a big crocodile puppet, but these are both friendly characters.

From kings and queens to aliens and ghosts, there's something for everyone in Charlie's amazing book! Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations. All ages are welcome at our shows and age ranges can only be a rough guide, but please bear in mind that Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book was not specially designed for under-threes. There is nothing really scary in these shows but they can be a bit more dramatic than those for the youngest children, including in their use of sound and lighting, and characters may face some perils.In addition to the modern classic, THE GRUFFALO (0 333 71093 2), her most recent collaborations with Axel Scheffler include THE SNAIL AND THE WHALE (0 333 98224 X) and THE GRUFFALO'S CHILD (1 405 02046 6). Relaxed Performances are provided for people who would benefit from a more relaxed environment, or are uncomfortable with sudden lighting changes or loud noises, including those with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, sensory or communication needs or a learning disability.
