Grug Book Signing
Ted Prior, who comes from Nerwcastle, has been entertaining generations of children with his stories based on the fictional character Grug, who sprung to life from the top of an Australian Burrawang Tree.
So far Grug has had 30 adventures in print. They were published between 1979 and 1992 by Hodder & Stoughton, Australia, and have been republished by Simon & Schuster, Australia since June, 2009
People have the opportunity to come and meet Ted, the world famous author and illustrator, between 11am - 1pm and 2pm-3pm this Friday 15th and Saturday 16rh July at the Morpeth Gallery in Green Street Morpeth NSW Australia. People can purchase a Grug book (at $5 each) and have it signed by Ted.
Original artworks from the books will be on display. Grug will make an appearance too. Grug resemblies a small, striped haystack with a face, he is fascinated by the world around him and solves everyday problems creatively and without fuss. When dancing instructions are too difficult to understand, Grug invents his own dance and calls it "The Grug".
