Claude in the Spotlight by Alex T Smith

Published by Hodder in April, Claude in the Spotlight is the fifth book in the popular Claude series written and illustrated by the very talented Alex T Smith. Claude and Sir Bobblysock's gentle stroll through town leads to leg kicking and bottom shaking as they dance their way into the theatre and straight into a local variety show. The winning prize is all the cakes you can eat from the delectable Mr Lovelybuns Bakery, how could they resist? But someone else, a dastardly and very naughty man has plans to scupper Claude's moment in the limelight and bag all the cakes for himself! The dynamic duo are thrown into a perilous world of ghostly apparitions, giant rabbits and voluptuous vikings. Alex's cheeky 'carry-on' humour encourages reluctant readers and rewards their parents with some well earned, laugh out loud moments.

Just Published: The King of Space by Jonny Duddle

At last the wait is over, Jonny Duddle, author of bestselling The Pirates Next Door, has a new picture book published by Templar this month. The King of Space is an intergalactic adventure, set on a Moog Farm on a small moon in the Gamma Quadrant. Rex may seem to be your average mini galactic citizen but he hatches an evil plan to become KING OF SPACE and conquer the known universe (and some bits we don't know about too). There are lots of aliens, warbots, a kidnapped Princess and dung blasters too! Here are just a few of the spreads as a taster but you'll have to buy the book from your local bookshop to find out more.

Down and Out in Paris and London

Paul Catherall illustrates a book cover for George Orwell's classic novel 'Down and Out in Paris and London' for Penguin Books. Catherall combines an expert eye for composition and colour with consummate draughtsmanship to create striking and iconic images. He is renowned for his clean, sharp linocuts of architectural landmarks and draws his inspiration from mid 20th century poster designers such as Tom Eckersley and Edward Wadsworth.
