When a little girl makes a string of paper dolls, she takes them by the hand on a fantastical adventure. Whirling through their home and garden they fly through the air, dodging the clutches of a toy dinosaur, a snapping oven-glove crocodile and a very real pair of scissors.

Lovingly adapted from the best-selling book by former Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson and illustrator Rebecca Cobb, this gentle story about childhood, memory and the power of imagination fills the Adventure Theatre with stunning puppetry and beautiful original music.
