Eleanor and Trevor will be reading and acting out the story of Galdo's Gift with masks and props based on their illustrations at the Discover Children's Story Centre on the 27th Oct 2017. Come along and enjoy the show and become a hero for the day!
A fun, frivolous and inventive performance of the innovative debut kid's book, Galdo's Gift, by Eleanor Long and Trevor Young. Fresh from their fledgling animation studio, Tapocketa.
Using scaled up images from their book illustrations for masks and props (and lots of Velcro), Eleanor and Trevor will transport you to Galdovia and the bizarre antics of four heroes sent by a noble frog king to bring back a rare gift for a very special visitor.... you!
This advanced preview is a sneak glimpse of iBook due for release in early 2018.

See you there!!!
It is our pleasure to be presenting Galdo's Gift to the children at Commonswood Primary School as part of their book week.
This gives us a chance to gauge the reaction of the children to the story and we will be giving the teachers a handout to give to the children with a few basic questions regarding their thoughts on the book and a chance to write a story from their own imagination. A link to the PDF of this handout (a single double sided page) is here.
Mainly we all want the children to have a lot of fun and be inspired to create their own characters and worlds.
Further Details: This is an unpaid event and no money is collected from the school or the children. The story is a tale of four hapless heroes and the performance is suitable for children of all ages.
