On What Inspired the Story
Like many kids who grew up in the 80’s I loved my children’s TV.
Shows like Thundercats, He-man, Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles were personal favourites.My background is in animation, so I naturally lean towards projects that have a more filmic quality to them and so I decided I would create my own version.
Aleksei Bitskoff is back with more fantastic illustrations for BAFTA winning children's TV presenters Sam & Mark's second children's fiction title.
Ahoy there, me hearties! The Monster's Gold, Jonny Duddle's third book in the Jolley-Rogers series for 7 to 10 year olds, is published this month. Lavishly illustrated on nearly every page, this book is another swashbuckling pirate adventure, jam packed full of action and humour.
Aleksei Bitskoff illustrates, The Adventures of Long Arm (Scholastic), a tale about schoolboy Ricky Mitre who is very naughty and gets into all sorts of trouble! After a bizarre toilet cleaning incident where his arm gets sucked into the U-bend, Ricky finds that when he takes it out again, it's many times its normal length. And so the superhero Long Arm is born!
