Come along to Max Minerva’s Bristol on Tuesday 16th April at 10am to meet local author-illustrator Katie Cottle. Katie will be in store for craft and story time based on her new picture book The Green Giant. Create your own leafy collage inspired by the book and pick up a signed copy! The event is suitable for children aged 5+

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.
