Storytime: The Selfish Crab

Oxfordshire County Library, Queen Street, Westgate, OX1 1DJ

Join author and illustrator Anya Glazer for an exciting story time session, including read-a-long and drawing activities! The Selfish Crab: Claude is a selfish crab and he refuses to give up his beautiful shell. Can Claude change his ways before he puts his friends in danger?

Suitable for under 7s. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

This event takes place in the Children’s Library. There is no need to book.

Anya Glazer studied History and French at Oxford University, before deciding to pursue her original career plan (conceived age six) of drawing pictures and telling stories. She loves working in pencil, which is how most of her illustrations begin. In between projects she can often be found doodling dinosaurs.
