Internationally acclaimed John Dougherty is an author, songwriter and storyteller whose performances leave his young audiences eager for more stories and with a rising passion for books. He is the author of all kinds of amazing books including:
The Stinkbomb & Ketchup-Face series:
“A laugh-out-loud read, bursting with energy and anarchy… Funny, silly and thoroughly enjoyable.” – BOOKS FOR KEEPS
“Side-splittingly funny… hilarious… 10 out of 10” – THE GUARDIAN
There’s a Pig Up My Nose:
“Delightfully funny… likely to prompt giggly hours of playing” – NICOLETTE JONES, SUNDAY TIMES
And others such as: Dinosaurs & Dinner-Ladies and a re-telling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
“In an age where all-things electronic are vying for children’s attention, John Dougherty is a wonderful ambassador for books. His events are as loud and colourful as his shirts. They’re packed with humour and music – he plays a mean guitar – and he clearly illustrates the joys of reading and writing. A John Dougherty session is such fun that his young audiences – big or small – might not realise just quite how much they’re learning.” – PHILIP ARDAGH (Roald Dahl Prize winning author)
Come along and be thoroughly entertained by our local superstar author, comedian and musician. Ages 7-11
