The Butterfly Story
This story appeared at the Edinburgh Festival from August 6 - 27. Here is a review from the Primary Times
This story is written in short rhyming verses with simple illustrations, one per page. A storytelling performance is available for libraries, festivals and schools.
The show is divided into movements: the first, strikingly visual, is a mime, movement and body comedy rendition of the whole story with the storyteller playing all of the characters: the second section is a discovery of the characters' musical instruments, revealed and tried out by the audience one by one . Next, the story itself is told, while the audience provide the sound track for the characters with the instruments themselves.
This story is baby friendly.
