Very Cheeky Bums with Claire Hooper

Princess Benjamina’s got to get to the bottom of her problem, literally! Her cheeky talking bum is getting her into all sorts of hot water, and she has to do something about it before her naughty botty ruins the Royal Ball. Can she come up with a plan to stop the bottom falling out of her very important day?

Comedian Claire Hooper’s hilariously silly new book, Princess Benjamina Has a Very Cheeky Bum, is the inspiration for this riotously fun Wheeler Kids event.

Join Claire as she sails through storytime, reads letters from kids about their own troublesome bottoms, and performs some kid-friendly stand-up. Jackie Nguyen, illustrator of Princess Benjamina has a Very Cheeky Bum!, will be live-drawing the event as it unfolds.

Suitable for kids aged 3 – 6 years old.

The bookseller for this event is Readings.
