Children’s Book Festival at Scariff Public Library
Puppeteers, artists and storytellers all paid a visit to Scariff Public Library this October to celebrate Children’s Book Festival in style. Niall de Burca got it off to a flying start with his rib-tickling stories after the Summer Reading Challenge certificate presentation. They made their own sock puppet with the Dog and String Theatre and got to put on a puppet show of their own. Alan Nolan impressed with his drawing skills and children had such fun designing their own comic strips and sketching one of the characters from his comics. Ger Siggins sure made an impression with his book Rugby Spirit, children are still coming in every day asking for copies. Wayne O’Connor’s passion for drawing and fantastically entertaining storytelling wowed the audience and he treated them to signed copies of his cartoons before he left! Looking forward to Children’s Book Festival 2014 already!
