Event description

Little Wing Puppets are on their way to the Library bringing with them their interactive environmental detective story A Little Bit of Blue. As well as unravelling a mystery, it involves learning about the unique habits of an extraordinary Australian creature, the bowerbird, and their fascination with the colour blue.

The story begins with strange disappearances from Mrs Mavis Hooley’s home. Something’s gone missing again. It’s nowhere to be found. Mrs Hooley has been looking everywhere. But it’s not just today. Every day a new thing seems to disappear. Little things. A$10 note. Clothes pegs. A ball of wool. It’s troubling at first, but then the thief takes it one step too far.

Mavis calls in a Detective to investigate. They set a trap for the burglar. A stake out is required. In the dead of night, and the Detective indeed finds something peculiar.... The children’s role is to help him solve the case.

This event is suitable for children aged 3 years and over. Parents are required to stay.


Jenny Ellis, a puppeteer of more than twenty years, weaves the whole tale together with a single set of hands, often playing multiple characters at once. Jenny has a Post-Graduate Diploma in Puppetry from the Victorian College of the Arts, and has performed hundreds of shows in numerous festivals, theatres and country halls in every state and territory of Australia, as well as overseas.
