In Barking up the Right Tree Theatre we are big fans of reading and love discovering new and exciting books. We also have our favourites from when we were young and in primary school (just like all the children in our audiences) and favourites now we are older. To join in the celebrations of World Book Day we thought we would share them with you all.
The Little Vampire: “I always liked old horror films and the Little Vampire combined that with a story about two young boys around my age which I could relate to.”
Matilda: “As a child I was (and still am) a huge fan of Roald Dahl. Matilda always stood out as my favourite, as like her, I always had my head in a book.”
Dracula: “I like the genuinely menacing atmosphere Stoker creates, the rich collection of characters and the sense of adventure particularly in the final chase towards the end.”
Harry Potter: “I have read the Harry Potter series countless times and I know I will read them hundreds more. I love nothing better than immersing myself in the fabulous characters, wonderfully written storylines and delving into the battle of good vs. evil.”
Happy World Book Day everyone!
