The Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book stage show is coming to a theatre new you!


Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book comes to live on the stage in a new show, opening in London before touring to venues across the UK.

Charlie loves reading. Especially books about pirates. But his sister hates it – it’s boring! Can Charlie convince her that reading is fun? Perhaps if she read a book about a pirate, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading a book about a knight…

Come and delve into a range of books with Charlie Cook, brought to life with puppetry and enchanting songs, and perhaps you will be able to help his sister discover the wonderful world inside a book…
