The Wonderful Emily Eyefinger - new book and play!

Emily Eyefinger has to be one of the most loved characters of kids fiction!  

When Emily was born with an extra eye on her finger her parents were understandably concerned, but it turns out that having an extra more agile eye is particularly useful when solving mysteries, which is what Emily does best.

This plucky young girl is off an another adventure this year in Emily Eyefinger and the Secret from the Sea, which is just as full of thrilling fun and exploration as ever. This new Emily book comes out in August, so there's just about enough time to work your way through the other Emily books if you haven't yet, or to relive them if you have!

And to complete your total Emily immersion, the Monkey Baa Theatre Company in Darling Harbour are putting on their fantastic adaption of Emily Eyefinger this July holidays. Barbara and Tony from the Shearers shop went to see the 2011 performance by Monkey Baa and were blown away, so we're very excited that we have a second chance to go along. Click on the video below to see a preview of this stage show, which has been described as "60 minutes of pure enjoyment, silly antics and good old-fashioned fun".

Last year Jason Blake reviewed the play, saying “This energetic stage adaptation of Duncan Ball’s adventure series for children combines the silliness of Ripping Yarns with the wackiness of Scooby-Doo”. Definitely one to check out!
