Little Leap Forward comes to the Liverpool Philharmonic

Little leap Forward in the paper shop.

Several years ago now, the internationally acclaimed musician Guo Yue and his wife Clare Farrow collaborated to write their award-winning book, Little Leap Forward (Barefoot Books) which I had the pleasure to illustrate. After many awards, a stage show and an inclusion in the 7 Stories list ‘Diverse Voices’ – the top 50 culturally diverse books in the UK since 1950 –  the authors are celebrating the novel at the Liverpool Philharmonic on March 22nd 2016.

The hour-long performance uses a blend of readings, artefacts and live music to bring the story, based on Yue’s childhood in Beijing at the time of the Cultural Revolution and Mao’s ‘Great Leap Forward’, to life.  Marking the 50th anniversary of the Revolution, it’s the wonderful tale of a little boy, a little bird and a little leap forward in understanding the true meaning of freedom.

The performance has been organised by the Children’s Bookshow and every child who attends the show will receive a copy of  Little Leap Forward.
