Badger the Mystical Mutt is a toast-crunching, spell-bungling, larger than life character who accompanies authors McNicol & Jackson everywhere.He’s pretty rubbish at magic, does lots of tail wagging and likes to shake his shimmy, especially with maraccas! Wee folk and big folk alike love his mischief and his stories.

From a series of illustrated children’s books for 5 – 9 year olds, Badger will be at the Bandstand to talk about his life on the lane and in the crystal cave and to answer questions –  every question asked receives a badgical magical sticker!
