Giving visibility and representation to all our readers

Collins Big Cat aims to include characters from a range of ethnic and social backgrounds, tell stories about people with differing abilities and profile positive female role models. This boosts self-esteem and engagement for all children and promotes acceptance and kinship. By reading fiction and non-fiction that represents us all, children will develop a greater understanding of the world and of themselves.

Our authors and illustrators

Big Cat is proud to work with brilliant authors and illustrators. Authors are thoughtfully paired with illustrators to ensure authentic representation.
