A Christmas Tail story reading at Gold Coast Christmas Markets

This year A Christmas Tail co-authored by Donna Smith and Helen Ross, featured upon invitation, at the Gold Coast Christmas Markets, Broadwater Parklands, Gold Coast.

As Helen lives in Brisbane, she was able to attend featured story telling sessions on Friday 19 December and Sunday 21 December 2014.

Story snopsis:

Melanie, Monty and baby Peter Mouse live in a doll’s house called Cherrywood Cottage. The Mouse family are full of excitement as they await the arrival of Santa Paws. However, an unlikely turn of events sets about a hilarious twist to their Christmas festivities. Find out how Santa Paws loses his trousers.

Any one familiar with this site or the picture book knows that Peter Mouse is the ‘star’ of this delightful tale, however Rupert Rat, who also appears in the story, decided he wanted to be the ‘star’ at the Gold Coast markets.

So here are some pics taken over the weekend – Rupert hogging the photos.
