Imagine Children's Festival This year's Imagine Children's Festival has a Roald Dahl theme running throughout, Judith Kerr is in conversation with Ian Craig, Michael Morpurgo's I Believe in Unicorns is brought to life on stage, and Rastamouse co-creator Michael De Souza inspires youngsters to read. The Wondercrump World of Roald Dahl takes visitors on a magical journey, there's a music offering that includes Dahl's final book The Minpins set to the music of Sibelius, played by the London Schools Symphony Orchestra, and a ward-winning Dutch puppet company Theater Gnaffel presents a double bill of Roald Dahl's Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs performed by life size puppets. Comedian David Baddiel discusses his latest children's book, The Person Controller, and Cressida Cowell, poet Joseph Coelho and CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell are just some of the many award-winning authors and illustrators making an appearance. Other highlights include a stage adaptation of Mr Tiger Goes Wild and the huge amount of free activities, from joining in with the Junk Orchestra to the Rap Factor battles, where the next hip-hop superstar will be revealed.
