Telling Tales Festival

Royal Botanical Gardens

Creative Workshop Stage

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

Ruth Ohi has illustrated over sixty books, twenty-one of which she is also the author. Her recent books include Choose Kindness, No Help Wanted, Scribble, and the Fox and Squirrel series. Blanket, Ruth Ohi’s first wordless book, is a heartfelt story about those times when you just want to hide under a blanket — and how much it can mean to have a friend who will be there to keep you company.

Join Ruth and Telling Tales volunteers who will help as she shows us how to create a wordless story with the mice duo who are the heroes of her new book, Blanket. All materials will be supplied, just bring your imagination. After the session, purchase a copy of Blanket at Different Drummer Books (on-site), and Ruth will sign it at the nearby Autograph Tent, beginning at 11:15AM.
