In celebration of children’s books, the Wheeler Centre and the State Library are throwing a humungous party – and all lovers of good children’s books are invited.
The fun starts on the State Library lawns with the Teddy Bears' Picnic with face painting, music and prizes for the best costume of a children’s book character. Workshops and activities will be running at the library’s Queens Hall and Experimedia space, and Village Cinemas at Melbourne Central will play host to a number of theatrical performances throughout the day.
If you venture further along Little Lonsdale Street you will find a petting zoo and marquees with activities like publishing your own book and lucky dips. In other excitement, you can line up to meet some of Australia’s best known children’s book authors and illustrators at the Wheeler Centre, including Andy Griffiths, Hazel Edwards, Graeme Base and Boori Monty Pryor – and either gush at them or pretend you want their autograph for an imaginary niece or nephew.
