A tiny fish uses ingenuity to fend off danger. A poetic mouse makes everyday life an artful experience. A proud inchworm measures everything he sees. The whimsical characters of Leo Lionni have made him one of the most beloved children's authors of our time, and now Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia stages three of his Caldecott Honor books: Swimmy, Frederick, and Inch by Inch. Hailed for its exquisite adaptations of classic stories using innovative puppetry styles, imaginative lighting, and original music, the company returns to the Kennedy Center following its hugely popular production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favourites. For ages 4 and up.
