Hold your breath and dive into the sea in search for Aisha’s Pearl. Dodge the jelly fish, swim around the octopus and wiggle between the see weeds to find the Pearl. You will have an ocean-astic time with Maitha Al Khayat, the illustrator of Aisha’s Pearl written by Julia Johnson. You will even get the chance to draw along with her - a favorite sea monster.  You can catch your breath now!

Pen and pencils will be provided, but children are free to bring along their own sketchpads and colouring pencils.

Dress-up is encouraged. So bring out your mermaid or underwater sea creature costumes and join the fun!
