Be immersed in the world of celebrated South Australia children’s author Phil Cummings in this free exhibition, Phil Cummings: Stories Behind the Books. Follow Wilbur on labels throughout the exhibition to explore with many of your senses. Discover a little more about Phil, how he writes and how stories can start as an idea on a vomit bag and end up in your hands as a published book! You can read one of Phil’s books in a chook shed, create your own stories in the sand … and much more.
This exhibition has been co-designed with children from Peterborough to provide exciting experiences for children of all ages.
Collect a Phil Cummings bookmark before you leave the exhibition. Show it to your school coordinator for a stamp in your Children's University passport.
