If Only with Mies Van Hout and David Colmer

A fun filled interactive session with international bestselling author-illustrator Mies Van Hout.  If only I were a bee, thinks the firefly. If only I were a spider, thinks the bee. Sometimes we all wish to be like somebody else but we should never forget what makes us special. David Colmer, the translator of If Only will read this delightful story and the author-illustrator Mies Van Hout will show her vibrant illustrations. You can draw along and create  your own insect picture.  Make sure you have paper, pencils and crayons ready!  We’d love to see your pictures – please tweet @otsfestival
