The Little Read: Perfectly Norman

@ Gala Theatre and Cinema

Book Now

12 October 2019



The Little Read returns to Durham Book Festival with the uplifting storybook Perfectly Norman, written and illustrated by Tom Percival. This exciting project for children and families will see us distribute 500 free copies of the book to every primary school in County Durham, along with teachers’ resources.

We will also be working with children in six community centres. Children in these communities will take part in creative workshops to create songs that will be performed live on stage as part of an exciting festival event.

Norman is normal – perfectly normal. That is until he grows a pair of wings! Norman loves his new wings, but he’s worried about what everyone will think. He feels the safest plan is to cover his wings up. But hiding the thing that makes you different is tricky. Can Norman ever truly be himself?
