Hi, I'm Pyn Stockman and I am a professional storyteller. I offer a range of activities for libraries designed to inspire and engage readers of all ages. I am always happy to tailor a package to your particular setting or come up something new! But this is to give you a flavour of what I can offer you:
Tricky Tricksters & Popular Pranksters!
A fantastic, interactive storytelling adventure!
(with puppets and masks)
Follow Fox through wild woods and city playgrounds to play pranks with Anansi, make up jokes with Loki, howl with Coyote and make mischief with Monkey.
Insightful trickster tales re-imagined for the 21st century.
“I was absolutely enthralled by Pyn’s storytelling as were the families” - Librarian, Erdington Library - Summer Reading Challenge 2017
Family Friendly Performances:
Drop in tales (for library spaces)
These lively, dramatic, interactive storytelling performances are a rich magical mix of international folk tales, wonder tales, myths and legends.
They can be linked by a theme and are ideal for National Storytelling Week, World Book Day or seasonal events.
They can fit into any space and are designed to attract a family audience.
