Little Angel Theatre are excited to be partnering with Michael Rosen to produce an online, puppetry adaptation of Clever Cakes.

First published in 1991, Clever Cakes and Other Stories is a collection of comical adventures about super-smart kids who triumph in a fun flip on traditional fairy tales. Little Angel Theatre will be adapting the title story, Clever Cakes, about a little girl called Masha and how she outwits a massive, greedy bear to escape home to her granny.

Rosen is a patron of Little Angel Theatre and a bestselling author who held the post of Children’s Laureate from 2007-2009. His YouTube channel, ‘Kids Poems and Stories with Michael Rosen’, has over 500,000 subscribers and 90 million views.

It will be broadcast for free on Sunday 1 November 2020, on both Michael Rosen and Little Angel Theatre‘s YouTube channels.
