Kid Normal / Greg James and Chris Smith
FESTIVAL OF WORDS
PERFORMANCE TIME: 2PM
Kid Normal is the debut children’s book by Radio 1 presenters Greg James (Drivetime, UK’s Official Chart) and Newsbeat’s Chris Smith.
When Murph Cooper rocks up to his new school several weeks into the beginning of term, he can’t help but feel a bit out of his depth. And it’s not because he’s worried about where to sit, and making friends, and fitting in, or not knowing where the loos are. It’s because his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake.
And unlike his fellow students, who can all control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever. But just because you don’t have superpowers, it doesn’t mean you can’t save the day. Let’s hope Murph realises that, and quick – because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans …
Get set for a hugely entertaining and interactive event exploring our preconceptions of superheroes and villains and featuring props, sing-alongs and games.
