The Giant of Jum is hungry and his favourite food is children! Learn essential skills for dealing with (and drawing) grumpy giants in this event with writer Elli Woollard and illustrator Benji Davies. Their new book, The Giant of Jum, puts a brilliant, big-hearted twist on a classic fairy tale. Tickets admit 1 child and 1 accompanying adult. Adult supervision recommended.

Elli Woollard is an exciting talent on the picture books scene, who started writing stories after an embarrassing incident in which her youngest son broke Michael Rosen's glasses. In addition to picture books, she also writes children's poems. Her snappy rhymes, catchy rhythms and witty stories are sure to make her a huge success. The Giant of Jum, her first book for Macmillan, was a hit debut and the start of her winning collaboration with Benji Davies. Elli lives in London with her four children, her husband and two guinea pigs.
