The Món Llibre 2011, the children’s book festival this year being held on 9 and 10 April at the CCCB and Macba.
Among the over a hundred free activities and workshops being held, children will be able to share experiences with the Japanese illustrator Taro Gomi, the creator of Gargots: a book for drawing, painting and creating (Un llibre per dibuixar, pintar i crear).
What’s more, there will also be a series of merry-go-rounds through Japan, on which children will be able to take a tour in tribute to their Asian counterparts and listen to traditional Japanese stories.
The festival includes other disciplines, such as music, dance and theatre, which offer alternative ways to tell stories to young children.
The performer Sònia Gómez will be doing a dance version of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are, while Joan Garriga, from La Troba Kung-Fú will be inviting children to live a pirate’s tale. There will also be puppets to suit all tastes, rappers like the Hipnotik Faktory.
Among the Book World areas that you really must visit is the Asterix: The Albert Uderzo’s Archives exhibition, with secret works by one of the two creators of this legendary Gaul.
