Telling Tall & Tiny Tales
Enter a world of books, illustrations and words at The Ark. Open throughout the Halloween midterm break and every weekend in November.
A big hit with audiences last spring, the Telling Tall & Tiny Tales interactive book experience (for ages 2-12) returns to The Ark, with lots of new stories, activity sheets and original artwork from well-known children's books for you to enjoy. Drop in and explore how writers and illustrators tell their tales, make your own stories in pictures or words, solve our puzzles, sign up for a workshop or simply pick up a book and escape into another world.
During the midterm break there will be Halloween-themed storytelling at 11am, 12pm, 2pm & 3pm each day, scary audio stories and spooky books to read. Come dressed up in your Halloween costume!
