Wake Up and Read with Frank Ozo

Posted on January 30, 2012. Filed under: 1 | Tags: , , , , , , , |

The kids at Springwood library were in for a treat last friday. They were enthralled for the entirety of the show ‘Wake Up and Read with Frank Ozo’ – a one-man comedy incorporating music, drama, mime, puppetry, magic and circus skills all linked with short charming tales about growing up in Australia. Each tale is another piece in the puzzle of how Frank came to do what he does today and tells the important role books played in his life. The photos are by John Merriman – thanks, John!
