Animals, Beasties and Monsters of Scotland

Scottish Storytelling Centre
Storytelling Court
Children, Storytelling

These stories are wild. These stories are magic. Maybe it’s wrong to try
and trap them in a book. Maybe you should set them free and tell them!

Join storyteller and author Lea Taylor and storyteller and illustrator Sylvia Troon as they enthrall the little ones with join-in songs, poems and some interactive stories from the book. Plus, there will also be a ‘beastie on a stick’ craft making event, so you get to take home your very own beastie or monster!


Book Launch | 3.30pm – 4.30pm | Free

Join Lea Taylor and Sylvia Troon after the children’s storytelling event to hear how the book came together and to get your book signed!
