Another SOLD OUT Storytime Sunday with Little Tiger Press & Waitrose!
With a 10am start, Ada Grey was raring to read her illustrated Hippobottymus (Little Tiger Press) to the crowd of eagerly awaiting children. Monkey impressions, Crocodile snaps, bubble dances galore – the group of avid fans were up on their feet joining in the jungle fun. After the reading, the families were invited to design their own hippos and colour in sheets of their favourite characters alongside the creative guidance of Ada (her bubble machine!) and Little Tiger Editor, Ellie Farmer!
The second hour of the creative event was dedicated to Waitrose Easter range designer Laura Hughes as she demonstrated how to sketch her cute characters and create Easter crowns. The giant egg decorating was met with a surprise competition for the BEST DESIGN – chosen by Laura herself, the excited winner received a giant Waitrose Easter Bonnet kit.
Throughout the morning, the kids were making full use of the giant chalk board wall – doodling alongside both Ada & Laura – and enjoying the array of pastries & refreshments the Doodle Bar had supplied. Donations for Great Ormond Street Hospital were taken from start to finish – the Waitrose Easter baskets were a hit and kids were lining up for a signed copy of Ada’s book!
A big thank you to our enthusiastic and talented artists Ada Grey & Laura Hughes – Hippobottymus publisher Little Tiger Press, editor Ellie Farmer and Publicity Officer Jessie Sullivan – Waitrose – our tireless Bright team – The Doodle Bar – and the families who generously gave to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
