The adventures of Gaspard the Fox are an acclaimed series of books based on a real fox that started visiting the broadcaster Zeb Soanes at home in London with pictures by the award winning illustrator James Mayhew – both originally from Lowestoft.
In a special premiere for the first Pakefield Music Festival, Zeb will perform the first two Gaspard stories at the Seagull Theatre with live illustration by James Mayhew and piano accompaniment by Chris Warner who composed the music for the audiobooks of the stories (available to download from Audible).
Meet Gaspard the Fox as he sets out one summer evening in search of adventure and something to eat. On his travels he meets a superior cat named Peter and Finty the dog, who help him navigate the local canal in his hunt for supper.
In Gaspard Best in Show (Published August 22nd), Gaspard and Peter set out to find Finty at the local summer fete. When Gaspard unwittingly gets entered into the fancy-dress dog show, chaos and hilarity ensue in this fun-packed sequel.
Zeb and James will be signing copies of the books afterwards.
