Description

Get ready for Book Week 2019 with a live 40 minute musical production including original songs and puppetry based on the CBCA 2019 notable picture book - Room On Our Rock, by Kate Temple, Jol Temple and illustrations by Terri Rose Bayton.

Read conventionally, it tells the tale of a groups of seals who fear the approach of a strange pair of seals, one a
child, whose rock is being overwhelmed by the sea. However, there is more to this book than a simple one-way reading can reveal. If you start reading at the back of the book and read all the pages in reverse order, it
become an uplifting tale of acceptance, encouragement and hope.

It is a beautifully illustrated story with a very powerful message that all ages will enjoy. The feedback from schools, teacher/librarians and parents is that younger students are enjoying this book as a story about empathy and thinking about others whereas older readers are making connections to social issues. It's an exciting book which resonates with so many different age groups.

Performed by Meerkat Productions.
