Just Published: Hector and the Big Bad Knight by Alex T Smith

World Book Day illustrator, Alex T Smith has written and illustrated his ninth picture book, Hector and the Big Bad Knight, published by Scholastic this month. Hector and his sidekick chicken, Norman, battle the evil Knight who has stolen Granny's magic wand. Can the tiniest boy in the village outsmart the naughty Knight and his humongous hungry dragon? Well, anything is possible with just little bit of magic and a bag of crisps!

To celebrate World Book Day, Alex also shows us 'How to Draw a Knight' in a series of pictures for The Guardian online.

Hog in the Fog

One of our brilliant new artists, Eunyoung Seo, has just had her wonderful illustrations published by Faber in the adorable tale 'Hog in the Fog', a Harry and Lil story. This is the story of Candy Stripe Lil and Harry the Hog. Lil is expecting Harry the Hog for tea, but there's a swirling fog outside and Harry is nowhere to be seen! Lil sets off to find her friend. Luckily she meets Deer, Sheep and Crow along the way, who all join in the hunt to find the hog in the fog. A heartwarming rhyming adventure story about friendship, teamwork and teatime! Eunyoung's drawings create a sublime sense of atmosphere and with her delicate approach and attention to detail, they really make this a stunning publication. And there's more good news too... there will be another Harry and Lil story coming your way soon, so we relish the prospect of more fantastic art from Eunyong. We cant wait!

Thomas Flintham: Marvellous Maths Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2014

We are very pleased to announce that Thomas Flintham's Marvellous Maths, written by Jonathan Litton and published by Templar, has been shortlisted in the 'Best Book for Facts' category for the very influential Blue Peter Book Awards 2014. The two winning books will be announced live on Blue Peter for World Book Day on 6th March 2014.

Marvellous Maths is an engaging and exciting exploration of maths, from the invention of zero to the geometry of a donut! Clear, humorous text with Tom's bright illustrations and interactive novelties help explain topics including numbers, geometry, probability, transformations and statistics. The focus is on making maths accessible and exciting, so each topic has an investigation for young number-smiths to try at home.

It's been Thomas Flintham's month as his book, Molecule Mayhem, written by Tom Adams, won this year's 2013 ALCS Award for Educational Writing. This book is an outstanding example of a non-fiction pop-up chemistry book that inspires young readers aged 5-11 years, as it seeks to engage by introducing them to complex concepts in the strange nature of matter.
