Zeb Soanes at Barnes Children's Literary Festival
On Sunday 26th June, highly acclaimed author Zeb Soanes will be at Barnes Children's Literary Festival celebrating all things Fred and the Fantastic Tub-Tub.
Fred and the Fantastic Tub-Tub is the latest book from Zeb Soanes, author of the bestselling Gaspard the Fox series. When Fred’s green-fingered grandfather shows her a map to the mysterious island of Papa Nupi, he leads her on a summer holiday adventure that just might save the planet. Join Zeb for storytelling fun and find out how you can play your part in protecting our planet. This picture book has been brilliantly illustrated by Anja Uhren, whose other books include Mother Cary's Butter Knife, written by Nicola Davies.
Barnes Children's Literary Festival is the UK’s largest dedicated children’s literature event. It is not for profit and is put on by families for families so they're 100% committed to making sure your tribe have an amazing time.
As well as bringing you all your favourite authors and illustrators, we’re always pushing the boundaries of traditional literature festivals to create loads more space for the family-friendliest fun.
At Barnes we programme books as theatre, music, maths, science, art, craft, cookery, film, football, whatever it takes really to bring the magic of reading and writing to the kids.
