The activity forms part of the library services for library members, with an optional 2 for 1 registration. This means each child with a library card can bring one guest.

Library members will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to biblioteca@iie.es confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Storytelling morning.

Non-members who want to participate have a symbolic associated cost of 3€ per child for each session. The tickets can be obtained at the library check-out desk the same week of the Storytelling morning up until 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity.

“Freddy the detective” by Walter R. Brooks with illustrations by Kurt Wiese

“The internationally bestselling Freddy series arrives in the UK From 1927 to 1958, Walter R. Brooks wrote 26 books starring one of the great characters in American children’s literature: Freddy the Pig. Freddy is ‘Everypig’ – he oversleeps, overeats, daydreams, and writes poetry. He’s even a little bit lazy. And when he’s scared, his tail uncurls. He is by turns a cowboy, explorer, publisher, poet, magician, banker, pilot, detective. Whatever the situation may call for, Freddy always rises to the occasion!”
