Join ‘The Green Giant’ author Katie Cottle at the St Werburghs City Farm Spring Fair

27/04/2019 12:00 pm – 27/04/2019 3:00 pm | Boiling Wells Lane, St Werburghs, BS2 9XY Bristol, United Kingdom

Come along to St Werburghs City Farm on Saturday 27th April at 12pm to meet author-illustrator Katie Cottle. Katie will be running a mask-making workshop based on her new book The Green Giant, and signed copies of the book will be available to buy. The fair itself runs from 12pm to 5pm and will include live music, storytelling, face painting and food and drink.

You’ve met the Iron Giant, the Big Friendly Giant and the Selfish Giant. Now meet the Green Giant! A young girl, Bea, and her dog, Iris, are staying with her grandad in the country. Bea is bored, but Iris’s adventures lead them to the small and rusty old greenhouse next door. Inside the greenhouse, Bea finds… a giant. A giant made entirely of plants and greenery. Bea is scared, but the giant reassures her and explains that he has escaped from the grey city. Bea and the giant become friends, but can they do anything to make the grey city, and the world, a greener place? The Green Giant is a brilliant new picture book that highlights our concern for the environment, greening our cities, guerrilla gardening and making the world a better place.

Katie Cottle was the winner of the Batsford Prize 2017 and is a rising star in the picture book world.
