Supermarket Gremlins by Adam Guillain, Charlotte Guillain

Naughty gremlins bring chaos to the supermarket and beyond in this funny new lift-the-flap series - you'll never see supermarkets in the same way again! Gremlins are weeing on the floor, snoozing on the bread and is that a gremlin bottom in the fruit stall? Lift the flaps to find them all! Another rhyming romp from Adam and Charlotte Guillain, authors of Spaghetti with the Yeti - perfectly matched with Chris Chatterton's joyous, retro artwork to bring you the best and silliest supermarket story since Timothy Knapman and Sarah Warburton's Dinosaurs in the Supermarket! This is the perfect interactive picture book for parents and children to enjoy together. Find more zany fun in Adam and Charlotte's other picture book creations: Spaghetti with the Yeti, Marshmallows for Martians, Doughnuts for a Dragon, Pizza for Pirates and Socks for Santa. Adam Guillain is a performance storyteller and was the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre Writer in Residence. Charlotte Guillain is a prolific author of children's fiction, non-fiction and picture books, and together they have created the hugely successful George's Amazing Adventures picture book series. Chris Chatterton is an illustrator and animator from County Durham, England whose passion for illustration has led him to pursue a career as a freelance artist working for a wide array of clients. Chris loves all things creative and geeky.

Q&A: Adam and Charlotte

1. How did you get the idea for this book/artwork?

Like many parents with babies, Charlotte and I would make up silly rhymes and songs for all usual baby stuff: changing nappies, going to sleep, eating food etc. One of the first solids our own George loved was spaghetti. One day we were doing the usual nonsense stuff when the words 'spaghetti with the yeti' came out. We were on to it like a shot! When Egmont said they loved it and wanted Lee Wildish to create the illustrations we were so happy we danced a jig!

2. How would you describe the book?

It's very silly, funny and warm.

3. Which is your favourite character/theme in the book?

We love the character, George, partly because he's based on our own red-headed son, but because he so refreshingly innocent and optimistic. He has an idea and in good faith he just goes for it!

4. How long did it take you to write/illustrate this book?

The first draft was written in about fifteen minutes but we've been writing, rewriting and crafting this story for seven years.

5. How did you do the research for it? Where did you look/go?

Other than researching if anyone else had thought of this idea before, we did absolutely no research at all - which was great!

6. What other books have you written/illustrated?

It's a long list. Better check out our website www.tinnedspaghetti.co.uk

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
