STORYTELLING: Agent Green the Dragon Whisperer

First published in News

AGENT Green the Dragon Whisperer came to Barry children's library to enchant visitors with her storytelling as part of World Book Day celebrations.

Telling a mix of traditional folk tales and personal accounts of her life as a dragon whisperer, guest Chloe of the midnight story tellers, entertained children from Holton Road and Gladstone Road primary schools.

Children's librarian Gillian Southby said: "It's all about giving the children an appreciation of storytelling, creative writing and an enjoyment of books."

Chloe - no surname - of the Midnight Story Tellers stopped at Barry library as part of a tour across the Vale.

"I'm here in Wales telling stories about dragons," she said. "Which is a bit like taking coal to Newcastle.

"What this is about is firing up the children's imaginations and giving them a love of story and a love of the spoken word.

"Once they see that this is a performance, my hope is that they will be inspired to improve their speaking skills and to use their imaginations."
