A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

A Lovereading4Kids 'Debut of the Year 2011' selection.

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2011

14+. This is an absolutely cracking debut fantasy novel. Every teenager should make time for it as it's truly gripping and utterly original. You'll find yourself totally immersed from page one in a completely new and original fantasy world of where the ruling class consists of werewolves who also happen to be shapeshifters. Apart from a great story which builds into an incredible crescendo there are some very believable characters that you'll love and you'll hate but what's guaranteed is you'll remember them all and want to meet them again when the next in the series is published. This is a debut novel from the BAFTA award winning designer of Bob the Builder among others but his first love has always been reading fantasy and horror.

About the Author

Curtis Jobling

The designer of worldwide hit children's television show 'Bob the Builder' and the author/illustrator of numerous children’s books, Curtis Jobling lives with his family in Cheshire.

Early work on Aardman Animation’s 'Wallace & Gromit' and Tim Burton’s 'Mars Attacks' led to him picking up his crayons in 1997 to design the BAFTA winning Bob. The animated series of 'Frankenstein’s Cat', based upon Curtis’s book of the same name, picked up the Pulcinella award for Best Children's Show at the 2008 International Cartoons On The Bay festival in Salerno, Italy. His noisy new preschool show, 'Raa Raa', can be seen on CBeebies, while his original paintings and prints sell in galleries the world over. Although perhaps best known for his work in TV and picture books, Curtis’s other love has always been horror and fantasy for an older audience.

Watch Curtis show you how to draw Bob the Builder - and then transform him into a werewolf - in the video below:
