Eejits and Hissy Fits – junior review

Junior Review by Cora Dibdin

Scottish Storytelling Centre (Venue 30a): Wed 5 – Sun 23 Aug 2015

One woman, a small room, three stories.

The woman who told the stories was called Fiona Herbert. The stories were about some eejits and someone who has lots of hissy fits. An eejit is another word for a silly-billy.

Sometimes the stories made me feel scared but sometimes they were very funny. There were some surprises as well!

One story was about some giants, one was about a very, very, very bossy princess and one was quite like the Princess and the Pea.

My favourite story was the one about the giants. The second biggest giant was called Finn and he was very kind but the biggest giant wasn’t. He was looking for Finn and wanted to fight.

The storyteller had a very good voice. She had different instruments to make the sounds and used her body to act out the stories as well. She moved around the room and used the window.

She used her voice to make the bossy princess sound funny when she said: “My hair makes a perfect frame for my face”.
