Oh my goodness, exciting news! How to Hide a Lion has been adapted for stage by Peter Glanville and Barb Jungr at The Polka Theatre, London (They are the clever people behind 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'). I went to see it last week, and it was more than I could ever have imagined: true to the book, and full of the best surprises. I had an inkling it might be something special when I saw some of the puppets and music in development, but I was blown away by the final show.
The Guardian gave it a wonderful write up today (linked here).
If you get a chance, go and see it. It is on at the Polka Theatre to Feb 26, 2017
