20 August
26 August

A Rose Theatre, Little Angel Theatre and Lowry co-production

Based on the original book Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book - written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

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…
