About the Festival 2020 Festival Programme Schools' Programme Helen Stephens: Howto Hide A Lion - An event for First Schools An event for First Schools – ask your teacher. How does a very small girl hide a very large lion? It's not easy, but Iris has to do her best, because mums and dads can be funny about having a lion in the house. Luckily, there are lots of good places to hide a lion - behind the shower curtain, in your bed, and even up a tree. A funny, heart-warming story about a very special friendship. Helen Stephens is a prize winning author and illustrator, who lives on the Northumberland coast. Sold in nearly twenty languages world wide, there are now 4 books in the How to Hide a Lion series. Expect live drawing, reading from her books, drawing games and dressing up! Tickets for years 1-3 - contact [email protected] Booking for this event has now closed.
