HOEY HIGGINS & THE SHARK
Like sharks? Like pants? Like to see a shark in pants? Then "Hooey Higgins" is the series for you! Welcome to a land called Shrimpton-on-Sea where the folks are a bit unusual and you can make friends with Hooey, Twig, Will and Dingbat the dog. Are they naughty, slightly scruffy boys? Yes they are. Will they do anything for a few quid? Yes they will.
What's so unusual about that, then? Well, it all starts with the giant chocolate egg, and then there's catching the shark in the flowery duvet cover and then Twig dresses up as a sea-urchin and gets chased through the knicker shop by Basbo the bully (boo, he's mean!) and then there's the big explosion and everything. But it all makes sense when you read it. First in a new 7-9s series for kids who like to larf, with madcap illustrations from new talent Emma Dodson, part-time prop-maker for "Harry Hill's TV Burp" and "Mitchell and Webb".
Book two - "Hooey Higgins and the Tremendous Trousers" - coming autumn 2010.
