A new year is the perfect time for your child to discover a new author by attending one (or all!) of our free New Chapter children's author events for families between February- March.
For our final of three children's author events in community libraries across the city we are delighted to welcome Scottish author Alison Murray to Milton Library to share her picture book Pooka
An empowering tale about believing in yourself no matter how small you may feel.
Nina is a small girl living in a BIG city. She loves her home, but she has a secret wish... It begins as a niggle in her tummy, then it grows to an ache in her heart, until one day it grows so much she can no longer contain it:
"I wish this city could be different!" she shouts.
But what can Nina do? She's only small and small things don't count. Then she hears a little voice at her feet...
"Everything starts with something small."
Visually striking and sensitively told, Pooka is the story of one small girl who is empowered by a visit from a magical nature sprite to positively transform her city.
