Synopsis

Storytime: Superchimp by Giles Paley-Phillips

Superchimp is the hero of the rainforest. He spends his days rescuing baby parrots from trees and hippos who are stuck in the mud - no job is too big or too small for Superchimp. He even wears a cool cape, and rides around in a chimpmobile! But despite his bravery, even Superchimp gets scared sometimes...although the person he is most afraid of is not as terrifying as you might think! When Mum bellows at Superchimp to tell him it's time to come home, he obediently obeys. It seems Superchimp can be a superhero just as long as he doesn't upset his Mum and is home in time for tea - which is a lesson any child should know! A tounge-in-cheek way to introduce the topics of helping others, overcoming your fears and understanding rules.

About the Author

Giles Paley-Phillips

Giles was born in East Sussex in 1977 and grew up on the south coast. He neglected his education to pursue a career in music. He spent a number of years performing extensively around the UK, including slots at the Glastonbury festival.

In 2006 Giles released a collection of lyrics and poems in aid of Leukaemia Research, a charity dear to his heart, having lost his mother to the disease when he was six. After the birth of his first son, and a chance encounter with a collection of nonsense poetry by Shel Silverstein in a charity shop, he was inspired to turn his attention to children’s writing.

His debut picture book was The Fearsome Beastie, which won the People's Book Prize 2012. His most recent book is Tamara Small and the Monster's Ball - click here to read an article in The Sun about Tamara, Giles and his passion for monsters.

He has also published a collection of nonsense poetry, There is a lion in my bathroom, with proceeds going to Leukaemia Research.

Giles still lives in Seaford with his wife, Michelle, and their two sons, Elijah and Sonny.

Here's the author surrounded by his enthusiastic audience on World Book Day:
