Pamela's books are full of the music of language; they are 'fragments of theatre', designed to be read aloud and shared between an adult and a child. Patch Theatre Company of Adelaide has now created three theatrical performances from a selection of Pamela's books. These have toured throughout Australia since 2007; 2014 saw the first tour through New Zealand. All have performed to packed houses.
'From Pamela Allen's first publication in 1980 it was clear that here was a creator of picture books with all the glow, gesture, din and dance to capture the attention, engage the imagination, teach, show, tickle and excite small children.' Meg Sorensen, Australian Book Review
