COMING TO A LIBRARY NEAR YOU!


Thank you all so much. My daughters and I had a fantastic time on Saturday when we came to see your show at the Harwich library. The show was absolutely brilliant, my daughters are still talking about it and they said they loved it so much. You are all amazing and this is a great show for children and parents. We all had lots of fun. Xxx

My youngest daughter had a lovely time on Saturday watching your show. β˜ΊοΈ She loves to read at home and now says to her eldest sister she must read more else George and his friends will be upset and the pages in the book will fall out πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ We have booked up to see you again two more times!

AMBER NEWELL

My son absolutely loved the show and has proudly showed off his library card and told everyone that he saved the day! Absolutely fantastic concept for encouraging kids to read. Will George be going on any more adventures?

And so does George!

Crikey! What's happening to all the books?

Meet George at your local library this summer,  and help him, along with his team of librarians get to the bottom of this puzzling, bookish mystery!!



Will George find his way there ok? Will he get lost in a wormhole? Will he remember to bring his new book? Will he be in disguise or will he be wearing his shower cap?

Expect plenty of reading activities and lots of bookworm based mayhem!

ALL ABOUT BOOKWORMs

Have you ever seen a bookworm?


If you've ever been lucky enough to have spotted a real life bookworm, then you belong to a special group of people whose imagination extends far beyond the reaches of grown ups. You see, grown ups can't see bookworms. They are more occupied with the stranger things in life, like filling the dishwasher, tidying rooms and going to work.


But don't worry, if you haven't seen a bookworm yet, here's a few handy tips to help you on your way:


 β€’ You will often hear a bookworm before you see one. They talk and talk and talk all day long. Its not surprising as their heads are so full of words and stories.

Keep your ears open and listen all around you for the arrival of a bookworm.


β€’ It is not unusual for a bookworm to wear a watermelon for a hat, or sing to a potato, or leave a trail of broken television remote controls everywhere they go. You see, bookworms don't usually live in the human world. They get all sorts of everyday things mixed up.

Keep an eye out for a little wriggly creature behaving very strangely!


β€’ Bookworms have trouble remembering people's names. They may often call you things like Noodle, Plink Plonk or Captain Sizzle. Bookworms also get their words all jumbled up, like Barty Fum and Mider Span.

When you see a bookworm, don't forget to introduce yourself slowly and just hope they remember your name!



WHERE DID GEORGE THE BOOKWORM COME FROM?

There are bookworms all over the world and no-one really knows for sure how many. But George is a special bookworm. He grew up in The British Library in London where he read every book and now he can travel through wormholes disguised as full stops, stopping off at any place and any time to have tea with a T-Rex or play video games with a vampire! 


And while George may be an unpredictable and curious creature, there is one thing you can always be certain of . . . 


George LOVES BOOKS and he LOVES READING!


So if you're lucky enough to ever meet a bookworm, be sure to tell them about all the amazing books you've read and are yet to read. You'll have a friend for life! 


Meet the friends of george the bookworm

George The Bookworm currently lives in Manningtree with a rather excitable group of humans called The Grand Theatre of Lemmings, who spend most of their time dreaming up colourful and beguiling theatre shows, and conjure up fantastical films about curious bookworms and other strange creatures.


They make, perform and film their way to teatime and most of the time it goes fairly well. That is until George decides to offer a helping tail . . .
