Dog Tales - The Cast

Take six dogs, six children, six well-known illustrators, six easels, a whole lot of imagination, and a single hour, and you have the recipe for Dog Tales, one of the wackiest events on the menu at Falmouth’s Splash festival of quirky creativity next weekend.

A sort of Cornwall’s Got Talent for an impressive roll call of folk who make their living creating striking images and sparkling words for books – Michael Foreman, Michelle Cartlidge, Elina Ellis, Rebecca Cobb, Simon James and Caroline Uff – alongside a clutch of aspiring young writers.
