08/06/2019 10:00 am – 08/06/2019 11:00 am |  Max Minerva’s, 39 North View, Westbury Park, Bristol BS6 7PY

Head down to Max Minerva’s Bristol on Saturday 8th June at 10am to meet local author-illustrator Lucy Freegard. Lucy will be introducing Charlie mouse, the notorious cheese thief from her new book The Big Stink. There will be storytelling and mask making inspired by the book, and the chance to pick up a signed copy!

The Big Stink tells the story of Charlie mouse, a career cheese criminal. Whether it’s pinching Parmesan, creeping off with Camembert or robbing Roquefort, he’s always up to no good, and just can’t keep his whiskers off his favourite food stuff. This time, he’s planning his biggest heist yet – to steal a cheesy sculpture from The Museum of Art! After a hair-raising break-in – creeping past cameras, dodging guards and avoiding gates – he reaches his stinky prize. But Officer Rita is soon on the case. Will Charlie get away with it this time..? A witty, charming cat and mouse detective story with a surprising ending, and some humorous movie references thrown in for the grownups to enjoy!

Lucy Freegard an MA in children’s book illustration from Cambridge School of Art, a degree in illustration from Cardiff School of Art & Design and did her art foundation at Falmouth University.  Her previous books include Just Like Mummy, Just Like Daddy and Ballet Bunnies.
