Into the Wild Author Event at Swansea Waterstones

Start Date: 26 August 2023
Start Time: 11:30 am
Price: Free

This is a free, fun, Interactive, and Educational children’s event at Swansea Waterstones, perfect for kids aged 3+ and their families to meet the author of Into the Wild.

About the Book:

“Into the Wild” follows Joe, a nature lover who longs to find wild creatures in his city. When the Wild invites him on a night-time adventure, he discovers nature’s magic all around him. This enchanting picture book celebrates urban wildlife and the power of imagination.


At this event take kids to a Wild city as Thomas Docherty, the acclaimed author and illustrator, brings the story to life through live drawing and props. Lamp posts become giraffes, cars turn into hippos, and underpants transform into bats. They’ll learn to draw their own fox and get top tips on drawing nearly 100 animals from the book.

We think this is from Educational Fun for All Ages over the school holidays in Swansea. This interactive event offers a magical night-time journey through the wonders of wildlife right on our doorsteps. Discover foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels, and more!
