Have you ever been to the Natural History Museum in Dublin, otherwise known as the ‘Dead Zoo’? It was one of Peter’s favourite places as a boy, and he loves it so much he recently wrote a book about it called The Dead Zoo, a book Ryan Tubridy described as his  “favourite book from anywhere in the world this year”. 

Mr Gray owns a museum full of animals. He does not like children very much. In fact, he  is most at home with all things that are still, quiet and stuffed! So, when a real live mouse decides to move into the Dead Zoo, Mr Gray is determined that she must go. That is, until he needs her help … 

Peter will share his book with you, and then he will show you how to draw some of the animal characters from his book. So have paper, a pencil and some colouring pencils or markers ready.

A live, digital event, great fun for all the family!
