Reading and Q&A with Fabi Santiago, author of Daisy & Bear and Paws Off My Book
+ screening of The Snail & The Whale

We are thrilled to present a very special event celebrating storytelling and illustration for World Book Day at three of our London Cinemas.
Join author & illustrator Fabi Santiago for a fun-filled storytime and activity session. She'll read her hilarious book, Daisy and Bear, which follows the adventures of Daisy, who loves the cinema, and Bear, who has never been before... so all sorts of trouble unfolds when Daisy takes Bear for the first time!

Fabi will tell you all about what inspires her stories, show you how she draws her characters, and answer any questions from the audience. Daisy and Bear colouring sheets will also be provided so that you can get creative back at school.

Then we'll settle down and go on a journey into the deep, blue sea with a screening of The Snail And The Whale, Julia Donaldson's lovely tale about another unlikely friendship.

What could possibly go wrong when you take a bear to the cinema? EVERYTHING!
Daisy loves the cinema, but Bear has never been. As the film starts, she munches, crunches and slurps through her treats. She needs the loo. She laughs, in all the wrong places, and takes a phone call. Everyone is fed up with the bear, but when the film suddenly stops, Bear knows just how to get the crowd cheering...
