Mister Tootles Storychair was officially unveiled at St Barnabas Library on Saturday 30th January 2016.

Children are invited to climb into the magical tree and enter a secret, underground world. Once inside they can interact with sliding doors, pegs and boxes to reveal miniature worlds and release stories from the trees roots.
