More future releases to talk about. But no apologies because if you’re anything like me you can’t look at that image without grinning inanely. That’s Morris The Mankiest Monster, the first children’s book by illustrator Sarah McIntyre (of the much missed Vern & Letuce in the DFC). It’s written by Giles Andreae (who did all of the Purple Ronnie and Edward Monkton cards and other funny stuff).
When even the cover and the press release can raise a smile it’s a good sign that this will be a really good picture book for children (and grown ups as well!). Morris should be released by David Fickling Books early October.
