To mark the 15th anniversary of her international bestseller The Gruffalo, Britain’s Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson will make an exclusive Toronto appearance at Small Print’s 6th annual Totsapalooza.

Author-artist-CBC Broadcaster Kevin Sylvester hosts an all-star Birthday Party for The Gruffalo. A world-renowned children’s performer, Julia Donaldson will regale the 2-7 year old set with stories and songs, and, conduct cool D.I.Y. crafts.

Kids can also dance to local indie-pop heroes The Bicycles, groove with choreographers from the Movement Lab, and pose for photos on the red carpet with a real live Gruffalo!

Due to last year’s record-breaking turn-out, Julia Donaldson, Kevin Sylvester, The Bicycles, Movement Lab and The Gruffalo will perform two intimate and interactive shows: at 10am-Noon and 2-4pm.

Kensington Market Bakery Wanda's-Pie-In-The-Sky will set up a pop-up shop, and serve their widely acclaimed handmade, all-natural treats and fresh coffee.

Julia Donaldson’s books will be available for purchase at the event.
