About this deal

Charlie Cook is reading a book about a pirate captain, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading about a knight, who is reading about a frog . There are eleven different books in this story, and my first idea was to have eleven different illustrators – one for each book-within-a-book!

Her other books include The Hospital Dog illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, The Christmas Pine illustrated by Victoria Sandøy and the hugely successful What the Ladybird Heard adventures illustrated by Lydia Monks. Relaxed Performances are provided for people who would benefit from a more relaxed environment, or are uncomfortable with sudden lighting changes or loud noises, including those with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, sensory or communication needs or a learning disability. Julia Donaldson has written some of the world's best-loved children's books, including modern classics The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which together have sold over 25 million copies worldwide and have been translated into over one hundred languages. Yoto Says: A dizzying adventure that immerses us in a book inside a book inside a book… all for the love of stories! Charlie Cook's Favourite Book is both entertaining and original - a sure-fire winner from the unparalleled picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo.He has enjoyed particular success in his collaborations with Julia Donaldson, for which their many awards include the Smarties Gold Prize, the WH Smith Children's Book of the Year, the Blue Peter Best Book to Read Aloud and Children's Audio Book of the Year. A show aimed at two-year olds would have some differences – those shows are carefully made to hold their attention for the duration, and not to be unsettling for them. This was the last book In the Julia Donaldson series I brought my grandson , they love them and are so well illustrated … as is this one . Julia is also the author of the young fiction series, PRINCESS MIRROR-BELLE, and is much in demand for her brilliant events for children at schools, libraries and literary festivals. All ages are welcome at our shows and age ranges can only be a rough guide, but please bear in mind that Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book was not specially designed for under-threes.

Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations. I wanted all the books to look very different - in different styles - but in the end there wasn't enough time to work that out (may be I would have failed anyway). This play is based on the original book Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book -Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. From kings and queens to aliens and ghosts, there's something for everyone in Charlie's amazing book of adventure!

She was the UK Children’s Laureate 2011–13 and has been honoured with a CBE for Services to Literature.

As in the book, there is also a ghost carrying her head, who appears in the show with ‘haunted house’ sound effects, but she then puts her head back on, settles down to read a book and doesn’t seem scary anymore. The audience stay in their seats while watching, but you can leave and re-enter the auditorium at any time.This edition features the classic story with a stunning, redesigned cover and beautiful finish, making it a must-have addition to the bookshelves of all Donaldson and Scheffler fans - big and small!
