new picture book cover!

This one isn't coming out til March 1st, but thought I'd give you a peek anyway! It features a princess, a space ship, chocolate, cakes and ALIENS!!! ...Ha ha, you'll never guess which things I had the most fun drawing.



Here's what Scholastic UK are saying about it on Amazon:
When King Cupcake is kidnapped by hungry aliens, it's up to his feisty daughter, Princess Spaghetti, to save him from becoming their dinner. She blasts off into space to show those naughty aliens who's boss - and introduces them to a delicious alternative to people: chocolate! This hilarious romp will delight chocolate lovers everywhere!

Gillian Rogerson's text IS funny, I had such a giggle when they showed it to me. And I probably gained ten pounds doing 'research' drawing the cakes, this book should come with a health warning.

UPCOMING EVENTS:
Tomorrow! (Saturday) London, Roehampton University: IBBY Conference: Going Graphic: Comics and Graphic Novels for Young People, featuring speakers Paul Gravett, David Fickling, a panel with Emma Vieceli, John Dunning and me, moderated by Ariel Kahn; Marcia Williams, and Janet Evans speaking about Raymond Briggs. All day conference, and I hear Jim Medway is coming along, too!

Saturday, 21 Nov: Wigtown, the book town, southwest Scotland, Box of Frogs bookshop. Starting at 10:30am, I'll read Morris the Mankiest Monster and lead a 'Make your own Monster' workshop. Book sales and signing.

Saturday, 12 Dec: London, Wandsworth: Signing Morris the Mankiest Monster at The Golden Treasury bookshop from 3pm.

March 27 & 28: Inverness Highlands International Comic Expo (or 'Hi-Ex'). Talks and workshops with studio mate Gary Northfield. And Asia Alfasi says she's coming, too!
