Edward van de Vendel at Imagine Children's Festival

Playground of Poems: a reading from Super Guppy by Edward van de Vendel.

Edward van de Vendel shows children how much fun poetry can be. Edward reads poems from his collection Super Guppy.

It’s about familiar things such as getting your socks wet, being tucked in at night by Mum, and having a plaster on your knee – ow! – taken off.

To these things he adds dimension in order to make the young reader work a little. And that’s what they will also do in the workshop.

Age recommendation: 6+
