Synopsis

Super Loud Sam by Jo Simmons

Meet SUPER LOUD SAM! He's the best (and loudest) superhero around and in this thrilling illustrated adventure he's here to save the day! Sam Lowe is a smaller than the average boy with a louder than the average voice. Often people - his parents, teachers, random strangers - tell Sam to SHUSH! but it's like asking a baby polar bear to stop looking cute. Impossible! When a sinister new teacher, Mrs Sandy Mann, starts at Sam's school, he realizes she wants to silence children and their creativity, energy and noisy zest for life - with a special sleep spell. Only Sam's shouty voice can break through her spell and save his friends from her slumber. But can he defeat her for good and restore fun to the school?

About the Author

Jo Simmons began her working life as a journalist. Her first fiction series for children, Pip Street, was inspired by her own kids' love of funny fiction, and two Super Loud Sambooks followed. In addition to children's fiction, she co-wrote a humorous parenting book, Can I Give Them Back Now?: The Aargh To Zzzzzz Of Parenting, published by Square Peg. Jo lives in Brighton with her husband, two boys and a scruffy formerly Romanian street dog. I Swapped My Brother on the Internet is her first book for Bloomsbury. Nathan Reed has been a professional illustrator since graduating from Falmouth College of Arts in 2000. He has illustrated Christopher Edge's How to Write Your Best Story Ever and the Elen Caldecott's Marsh Road Mysteries Series. His most recent picture book is Samson the Mighty Flea by Angela McAllister. He was shortlisted for the Serco Prize for Illustration in 2014. When he's not illustrating he can be found with his two boys and a football on Peckham Rye Common.
