Big Cat story time workshop with Emma Lazell at Fillpots Garden Centre

30/07/2019 12:00 pm – 30/07/2019 1:00 pm | Fillpots Garden Centre, 52 Straight Rd, Boxted, Colchester CO4 5RB

Join author and illustrator Emma Lazell for a story time and craft activity based on her new picture book Big Cat at Fillpots Garden Centre on Tuesday 30th July. Emma will be running a workshop which will show you step-by-step how to draw Big Cat!

In Big Cat, Isobel’s grandma has lost her glasses and she can’t see a thing without them. While Isobel and Gran are in the garden searching for the specs, they come across a cat. A very big cat. A very big and friendly cat. The big cat moves in with them, much to the disgust of all gran’s other cats. He might be good fun, but he takes up lots of space and eats every scrap of food. Eventually the new cat’s mum and dad turn up, looking for their missing son. And they just happen to have found gran’s glasses too. The tiger family are delighted to be reunited – and gran now sees that she’s been sharing her house with… a tiger!
