It is late afternoon in Rotherham town centre. Grimm & Co, the magical shop where children meet to write stories and stock up on potions, is just about to close. Dr Martin Never-Ending Door – or Ned, for short – is having a moan, while Michael Stopper the potion bottle is sleeping.
Escape into the unfettered imaginations of Rotherham’s young writers as Grimm & Co takes you on a spectacular journey through five linked stories.
A fusion of five fantastical tales. Delightfully charming and full of laughs, written by a group of nine- to eleven-year-olds.
