Come along to Heffers Bookshop, Cambridge on Wednesday 31st July at 3pm to meet author/illustrator Emma Lazell. Hear Emma read from her hilarious new picture book Big Cat and stay for a workshop to make your own Big Cat mask!

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!

Emma Lazell is a UK based illustrator and author. Her work is linear, expressive, and sprinkled with irony and playfulness. In 2018 she completed the prestigious MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, graduating with a distinction. In 2014 she graduated with an undergraduate degree in Illustration from The University for the Creative Arts.
