Five of our favourite Margaret Mahy stories, brought to life with animation in one magical screening:

The Three-Legged Cat 

A tale of mistaken identity. Come and find out if Tom, Cyril and Mrs Gimble’s wishes come true.

The Great White Man-Eating Shark 

Norvin is a great actor, but he is rather plain. In fact, he looks very like a shark. See what happens when he hatches a cunning plan at Caramel Cove.

The Witch in the Cherry Tree 

An hilarious and mouth watering story of a witch who couldn’t resist the smell of baking.

Keeping House 

Lizzie Firkin’s house is a mess and she is far too busy to tidy up. When she sends for Robin Puckertucker, the Wonder Housekeeper, there is quite a surprise for them both.

The Boy with Two Shadows 

The story of a boy who minds a witch’s shadow – it’s more complicated that you’d think!
