Who loves going to watch pantomimes? – Oh, no we don’t! Oh, yes you do!
With panto season well and truly here, we thought we would look at 3 classic stories that are usually transformed every year into an all singing, all dancing, joke filled extravaganza!
Jack and the Beanstalk is a popular story, and in this version, it has been carefully retold for young readers and is accompanied by bright, colourful illustrations. Discover how Jack ends up with a beanstalk growing in his garden, and what happens when he climbs it all the way to the top.
Snow White "Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" The illustrations in this version of the popular fairy tale are fantastic, and you will find yourself lingering over them on each page. It’s worth knowing that this version doesn’t use the popular Disney names for the dwarves, but you usually find that most pantomimes don’t either, so if you’ve been to see this one with your children you are sure to enjoy re-living the story with this beautiful book.
Peter Pan Finally, we have a spectacular deluxe version of this childhood favourite. The characters are brought to life in enchanting illustrations and removable features. This hardback version has been put together by the design team behind the Harry Potter movies, so you know you’re in for a real treat!
Are you taking a trip to the pantomime this year? Maybe you’ve already been. We’d love to hear what your children enjoyed most about the experience and if they like to read the stories and remember the actions from the show.
Merry Christmas from all of us at Boolino!
