Event Details

The Happiness Box tells the story of three animal friends as they journey through the jungle on a quest to discover the secret of happiness. This delightful tale was written for Changi Gaol’s child prisoners in 1942 by Australian POW David Griffin, and illustrated by fellow POW Leslie Greener. It has been thoughtfully scored for young audiences by award-winning composer Bryony Marks to capture the sense of wonder, trepidation and delight of the friends’ adventure. Greener’s beautiful illustrations from the original book will accompany the narration and music.
