When Isobel comes across a very big, friendly cat one day in the garden, she immediately welcomes him into her home. Luckily, her grandma has misplaced her glasses and doesn’t seem to notice that the large, orange, striped cat is in fact a tiger!

Emma Lazell’s heart-warming and surreal picture book, Big Cat, will charm readers with its bold illustrations, crammed with zany details and jokes.

In this craft-based storytelling workshop, kids will get a chance to make their own tiger masks and follow along as Isobel and her gran slowly realise that their new house pet may be a little too much to handle.
