Grandma Sure has a Surprise with her New Big Cat

Disclosure: This is a collaborative post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Big Cat by Erma Lazell is a super cute story in a big hardback book that kids will laugh at while reading, and cherish for years to come. This is the kind of book that easily becomes a family favorite. Make sure you've got your glasses ready to read this book! How can I find glasses that fit my look? Well, the options online are extensive and affordable too. 

Grandma gets a new cat, but he seems different than the cats she is used to having around.

Among other things, he eats a lot more food than the other cats. A lot more. You can see where the story is going...and imagine grandma's surprise when she puts on her glasses!! I love this story and think it would make a great gift idea for any young child. Find this book in retail stores everywhere, or online, including Amazon. It is also available at Pavillion Children's Publishing.

Lazell’s bright colors and brilliant characterization gives the book the look of a classic from the 1970s or earlier, but with a very modern sense of humor and sensibility.

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 stripy 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 mom 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!

A heartwarming and surreal romp, packed with jokes and funny details and with an underlying message of acceptance.


  1. What fun. As a dedicated cat lover I would be happy to share some space with a tiger.

  2. Sharing her house with a tiger! Yikes! The book does look super cute!
