Jonny Duddle New Picture Book: Gigantosaurus

Gigantosaurus, is the gorgeous, brand new picture book about Dinosaurs from award winning author and illustrator Jonny Duddle. His beautiful landscapes and detailed, lush forests of ancient ferns are a playground setting for dinokids; Bonehead, Tiny, Fin and Bill as they go on their adventures in the Cretaceous sun. They meet a triceratops, a diplodocus, a stegosaurus and a very scary Gigantosaurus in this crazy prehistoric caper. The new hardback edition comes with an enormous poster featuring the Gigantosaurus chasing our four little heroes. This is Jonny’s fourth picture book published by Templar Publishing.

Steve May: Diary of Dennis the Menace

Steve May's lifetime ambition to draw his comic heroes Dennis The Menace and Gnasher has been realised at last. Diary of Dennis The Menace is the first title in a brand new series, written by Steven Butler and published this month by Puffin. Steve was initially asked to submit samples of both characters - the brief he was given:  "Dennis would need to retain the high smile that sits just below the nose and eyes, plus his typical features – spikey hair, red and black jumper and shorts etc, but the Beano are keen for the illustrator to leave their mark on this. Being Dennis the Menace, the illustrations can afford to be anarchic and quite dominant throughout the book.”
 
Of course, Steve loves a bit of anarchy and his response was to produce these amazing character designs! Gordon Tait from DC Thomson & Co aka The Beano HQ said: " I think it's safe to say we were all very excited when Steve's initial drawings came through and for us the choice was pretty much a no-brainer as they say… it was exactly what we were looking for."
 
Steve went on to illustrate the cover and black and white illustrations for the insides, with added splats, ink blots, fingerprints and paw prints to emphasise the handwritten diary feel.
