Telling Tales Festival

Royal Botanical Gardens

Rose Garden Main Stage

Age / Grade 4-6 / Kindergarten 6-8 / Grades 1-3

Join Francophone author and illustrator, Marie-Louise Gay for a reading from her new book Hopscotch and meet Ophelia, a girl whose family must moveā€¦ again! Giant hungry rabbits hop in the moonlight and crow-witches cackle in the trees. But with the help of a magic wand, a blank piece of paper, and rainbow pencils, Ophelia overcomes her fears of being in a new place and makes new friends.

Buy a copy of Hopscotch at A Different Drummer Books and Marie-Louise will sign it at the nearby Autograph Tent, beginning at 11:00 AM.
