Announcing ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ at TIFF Kids!

Mark Your Calendars, StoryMobbers!

Well here is the latest news…we’ve been sitting on this to allow our friends at TIFF to spring the surprise first at their TIFF Kids International Film Festival press conference yesterday (read the press release here).

On Saturday, April 19th we will celebrate ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett.

Cloudy_with_a_Chance_of_Meatballs_(book)We are delighted to partner with TIFF Kids to bring this classic book to life.  TIFF Kids is also sponsoring a props-making craft session run by StoryMobs prior to the actual StoryMob.  The craft session and the StoryMob will both take place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox as part of the TIFF Kids film festival.  There will be a screening of the animated film ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ on the same day as part of the festival.  There is a charge for all film screenings, but the StoryMob and craft session are free.

Check out the schedule for the TIFF Kids International Film Festival and plan to see some of the amazing family films from around the world.

So if you don’t already have a copy, grab one from your local library or bookstore and start dreaming and scheming for April 19th!

We will have our reader parts posted shortly for signups, so keep an eye on the website!
