Alex T Smith

Fantastic Frankie and the Brain-Drain Machine, is published this month and features Alex T Smith's hilarious illustrations on the cover and throughout the book. This is Anna Kemp's first young fiction title telling the story of "F-for-failure" Frankie's escapades. He discovers that the headmaster has plans to turn the students into robot-like super-brains and this is his chance to save the day and change F-for-failure into F-for-fantastic! It's really worth checking out Alex's fantastic interpretation of the crazy characters: Frankie's friends, Neet and Wesley, Alphonsine, the French nanny and Colette, the poodle.

Fantastic Frankie and the Brain-Drain Machine is published by Simon & Schuster and available from all good book sellers.
