Save the date! There are just two weeks to go until the inaugural Kids’ big book spectacular, a day of free family fun to celebrate the world of children’s literature and illustration.

Children of all ages from across Victoria are invited to this giant storytelling party on Saturday 13 February from 11am to 3pm. Youngsters can take part in comic book drawing at the giant easel, express their inner monster at the creature retreat, add a story to the colossal chalkboard mural, and relax with a favourite book in the pop-up storytime picnic.

Presented in partnership with the Australian Children’s Literature Alliance.
