The Adventures of Squirky! Storytelling & Activity Session
Date: 9 Jul
Time: 4pm - 5pm
Admission: Free (Pre-registration required)
Go on a space voyage with Squirky, an adopted blue alien from Singapore, as he travels to mysterious planets with treacherous terrain and strange characters to find out more about his birth parents. (This is a spin-off from the award-winning picture book series The Adventures of Squirky the Alien.)
The Adventures of Squirky is a picture book series about a blue alien who goes around space looking for his birth parents. The Adventures of Squirky the Alien is not just for young adoptees. Any kid who has questions and seeks answers will, like Squirky, realise that any form of exploration is riddled with challenges, and it is only by overcoming these hurdles that you discover who you truly are as a person.
