short stories for a long night

The greatest bedtimes stories, for all from the age of 6. Gerda Dendooven, Mélanie Rutten and Fatima Sharafeddine read from their award-winning picture books, in Dutch, French and Arabic. A Turkish story about a red apple wraps up the event. A real Tower of Babel in the fairy-tale theatre BRONKS, with pancakes served in the café.

The red apple | 18:00 - 18:45 | NL, TU
One cold winter's day, a little rabbit sees, to his delight, a red apple hanging from a tree. But no matter how he jumps, he can't reach it. Luckily he gets some unexpected help from a field mouse, a fox and a bear. This delightfully funny and often translated tale by Turkish author and illustrator Feridun Oral is read in Turkish and in Dutch.

The world of Mélanie Rutten | 18:00 - 18:45 | 8+ | FR
Where does the artist find her ideas? Do writer-illustrators have their own little secrets? Mélanie Rutten opens up her toolbox and sketchbook. She explains how characters and landscapes come to life. To top off the event she reads from her latest book, to be released a few days before the festival. The story takes place over the course of a night, beginning in total darkness and ending with daybreak. Conversation: Maggy Rayet.

Don't open this book! | 19:30 - 20:15 | 6+ | FR, AR
A book with two sides. You can open this side and smell the lovely scent of home. But the other side has a warning: Don't open this book! Fatima Sharafeddine reads her book in two languages. Curious as to whether she will ignore this advice…

The magic garden | 19:30 - 20:15 | 7+ | NL
A king has 12 daughters. He forbids them to leave the palace. Much too dangerous. But girls want to go out, and there's nothing you can do about it! Gerda Dendooven reads a very personal tale and shows the drawings from her book.
