The Three Little Fishes and the Big Bad Shark

Mon, 18 Oct 2021
10.30am - 11.30am
Puppet’s Plays and Storydays are sailing around the East Riding with a fabulous new puppet retelling of: The Three Little Fishes and the Big Bad Shark!

"Little Fish, little fish, let me come in.
Not by the skin of my finny fin fin!
Then I'll munch and I'll crunch, and I'll smash your house in!"

Join Carol and her puppets as we find out what happens to our Three little fishy friends Jim, Tim and Kim as they go out into the big blue sea and build their own little homes. Will they get eaten up by that big old shark?

Children will delight in this very funny whale of a tale.
