The story began as a stage show in 2005 and has now been transformed into the book written by Toby Mitchell and illustrated by Anna Lewenhaupt. It is being staged at The Patrick Centre Studio within Birmingham Hippodrome until January 7.
Billy the goat, played by Danny Hendrix, goes on an adventure to pick some berries so that he can leave them out on New Year's Eve in exchange for a present from the Snow Dragon. Sounds like a familiar story doesn't it? but this is set in the animal kingdom where they hadn't heard of Father Christmas.
Along the way, he helps his hedgehog friend Spike pick some mushrooms for the Snow Unicorn, Rosie the piglet find some acorns for the Snow Goblin and then he gets up to mischief and has to learn some valuable life lessons from the wolves he meets in the dark wood.
The Mum - Amy Harris - is no stranger to Tall Stories, and played many parts in this show including the Mum, Rosie and Ms Wolf alongside Glyn Williams as Dad, Spike and Mr Wolf. They were both very energetic and likeable involving one and all.
The best bit about the performance was the catchy original songs that had everyone howling like wolves and clapping along.
This is a great show to see over the festive period and there are still tickets available until Sunday January 7, 2018 priced at £12.50.
