This week’s story…
The Tall Man and the Small Mouse
words by Mara Bergman
illustrations by Birgitta Sif
On a tall hill, in a tall house, lived a tall man and a small mouse… From Mara Bergman and Birgitta Sif, creator of Oliver and Frances Dean Who Loved to Dance and Dance, comes an enchanting new story of friendship and teamwork; a modern fable of little and large. All day long, the Tall Man does tall things that need doing, like picking apples and untangling swings and fixing all the broken things.
But, one day, the huge town clock simply stops to TICK and TOCK and DING! Whatever will the Tall Man do? However hard he tries, he just doesn’t have a clue! Perhaps now is just the right time for the perfect little friend to come along?
Sunday Stories is aimed at children between 3-7 years old (but all welcome). Each session will last about 45 minutes and prominently features a hand-picked book from our much-loved Children’s Room, followed by some crafts or games based on the book we’ve just read.
Sunday Stories is completely FREE and no booking is required, though we advise turning up a bit early in case it’s busy! We’ll start sharp at 11.30am, and while your little ones are entertained by stories, grown-ups can enjoy a proper browse in the shop.
10% off on the weekly Storytime book all Sunday!
A perfect bookish fix before/after heading to the weekly Stockbridge Market.
