Celebrate National Bookshop Day with Emma Lazell’s Big Cat

05/10/2019 10:30 am – 05/10/2019 11:30 am | BB's Play Cafe, 5 New Parade, Chorleywood, Rickmansworth WD3 5NJ

Celebrate the National Bookshop Day with our author and illustrator Emma Lazell! Join her for a craft and storytelling session based on her debut picture book Big Cat at the below event at BB’s Play Cafe.

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.
