To celebrate its first birthday, Where the Wild Things Are in West End is holding a weekend-long party filled with fun activities just for kids!

Festivities kick off at 4pm on Friday, when Maisy Mouse will be visiting the store to meet and greet her fans, followed by a Wild Rumpus dress-up party with prizes for best and wildest costumes, cake (and wine for the adults!) and a Wild Rumpus Parade. The evening will also see a visit from special guest Isobel Carmody, recently voted Australia’s Favourite Author.

On Saturday, come in your best super hero outfit for Super Hero Morning, featuring Maisy Mouse and some super activities for kids! One of Brisbane’s most popular local authors, Peter Carnarvas, will also be there to help celebrate with a reading from his newest book.

On Saturday afternoon from 3pm, parents can take a break and sit down for afternoon tea with local authors and illustrators, who’ll be signing books and chatting with kids and adults over coffee (or babychinos) and cupcakes!

On Sunday there will be real live creatures in the shop! Wild Rangers will be stopping by from 11am to 1pm with all kinds of cool soft and scaly animal friends for kids to see and touch.

So come on down to Where the Wild Things Are and help celebrate!!
