'Silly Name for a Monster' written by Timothy Knapman & illustrated by me is out today published by Scholastic.
'Once upon a time if you wanted to be a hero, you had to have a proper, hero-sounding name. And if you wanted to be a big scary monster, it was no good unless your name was big and scary too. But when all the proper-sounding heroes can't defeat the most menacing monster in the kingdom, the king offers his whole kingdom to whoever can beat it. Could Stinkpot succeed? Even with such a silly name?'
It's got scary monsters, heroes, donkeys, knights in pink frilly knickers & INCREDIBLY SILLY NAMES! I think you should go out & buy it!
You can order it from here or preferably get your best pair of pink frilly knickers on pop into your local bookshop & get it there!

The fact that I laughed out loud when I first received the text was definitely a good start & I thoroughly enjoyed illustrating this. It's a hilarious book with a big scary monster, some cowardly knights & a little boy called Stinkpot. Can he succeed in defeating a monster with such a silly name?
I'm not going to tell you that. You'll have to wait until August 7th until it's actually released so there!
In the mean time, here's a sneak preview...
