The Monster Party

Connswater Shopping Centre & Retail Park and Eastside Arts created a children’s book involving the commissioning of children’s author Myra Zepf and illustrator Tarsila Kruse to work with pupils from three local schools.

This very exciting project in conjunction with Eastside Arts whereby we decided to write and illustrate a picture book informed by p5 children in local schools.

We worked alongside Euston St Primary School, Orangefield Primary School and St Joseph’s Primary School.

We delivered workshops at each of the schools discussing the plot of  our book and asking the children to help to inform the storyline and what our main character ‘a monster’ should look like and be called. We worked alongside local author Myra and illustrator Tarsila to present the first ever Kid’s book produced by Connswater Shopping Centre.

When the centre is back open and fully operational make sure to pop along to the C.S. Lewis reading corner at Connswater and pick up a copy of The Monster Party.
