National Storytelling Week: 30th January – 6th February 2023

Come and listen to the story of ‘Tistou – the Boy with the Green Thumbs of Peace’, brought to life by Mendip Storyteller, Janet North. When 8 year old Tistou kept falling asleep during his school lessons his parents decided he should learn from real life instead. What better way to start than by understanding the earth and plants. Mr Whiskers, the dreamy gardener is given the task of instructing Tistou in gardening and much to his surprise he discovers he has green thumbs, a gift that transforms everything he touches into beautiful plants. Tistou has no time to sleep now for with the power of flowers he can change the world, transforming prisons, slums, hospitals, even war. Suitability: 8+ and anyone who cares about the future of our Earth.
