We’re heading to The Word on the Street with Mr. Zinger’s Hat!

We are thrilled to announce our next Toronto StoryMob!

We will be storymobbing the imaginative and playful Mr. Zinger’s Hat written by celebrated author Cary Fagan, and illustrator Dušan Petričić on Sunday September 27, 2015.

  “Well, Leo I wonder why my hat took off like that. Maybe there is something inside it.” Mr. Zinger peered into the hat.
      “What is it? What’s inside the hat?” asked Leo. He looked, too, but he didn’t see anything.
      “Ah, I see now,” said Mr. Zinger. “It’s a story. A story trying to get out.”

A charming, marvelous tale surrounding the art of creating and telling stories, Mr. Zinger’s Hat celebrates the budding friendship between an elderly writer and a young boy who discovers a storyteller within.

We’re sharing a few details in advance so you can plan ahead – we’ll be parading through all the book lovers gathered at this year’s upcoming The Word on the Street Festival on Sunday, September 27 at their exciting new location at Harbourfront Centre at Queen’s Quay in downtown Toronto. Details of our exact location won’t be shared until much closer to our event day, but we will share that our StoryMob will be happening sometime between the hours of 1-4pm in the afternoon.
