Lapin Wants Breakfast (Le Petit Monde)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

A wander down the historic Royal Mile, Edinburgh’s charming old street, brings us to the Scottish Storytelling Centre. Tania Czajka’s Le Petit Monde puppet show is on here through the Festival, telling the tale of Lapin the hungry rabbit. This interactive puppet show is a mix of French and English dialogue, and therefore also a 40 minute lesson in language – unbeknown to the children, who participate throughout. Keywords and phrases are spoken in French and then English, along with illustration of said word, music and sounds. There is also a distinct Scottishness in Tania’s show: her French is intermittently touched by Scots. Smaller children and babies may become a little impatient, but this is a wonderful show for pre-school children.

Scottish Storytelling Centre, 5 – 23 Aug (not 6, 7, 17, 18), 11.00am – 11.40pm, £5.00 – £7.00, fpp24.
