This amazing exhibition will bring Julia Donaldson’s captivating story worlds to life. Find out how she wrote modern classics such as The Gruffalo, Princess Mirror-Belle and The Troll and explore original artwork by her many illustrators – most famously Axel Scheffler.
Follow her journey from song writer for children’s television to current Children’s Laureate. See how she inspires her readers with story rhyme and rhythm. Children and their families can share stories and explore sensory environments based on Donaldson’s books.
Follow in Toddle Waddle’s footsteps, climb into the cave with The Cave Baby and meet The Gruffalo. Sing-a-long to her songs on Julia’s Jukebox or perform a play in our theatre.
