Winner of the National Poetry Competition Julia Copus presents her fantastic picture books starring Harry the Hog and Candystripe Lil.

Copus whisks you off to Piggyback Hill to meet its magical inhabitants. Badger’s having a hat party, and best friends Harry and Lil are invited. But just as Lil the shrew is fetching her favourite hat from the washing line, it blows away – too high to rescue. Harry says it’s gone for good, but Lil has other ideas… Hear Julia read The Shrew that Flew out loud, find out what makes things fly, and discover the power of never saying never.

Copus has won First Prize in the National Poetry Competition and the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem (2010). She also writes for radio; her first play, Eenie Meenie Macka Racka, was awarded the BBC’s Alfred Bradley prize. She is a reader for the Royal Literary Fund.
