During Children’s Book Week, 20th – 26th August children from local schools entered Fremantle Library through an avenue of characters replicating Deborah Niland’s illustrations for ‘The Tall Man and the Twelve Babies’. Once inside, they were entertained by author Martin Meader and Sparkles.
Martin spoke of the inspiration for his novel, ‘The Adventures of Charlie & Moon’ and Sparkles gave a magical performance that had the children enthralled.
