For ten years Sam Enthoven worked in a big London bookshop on Charing Cross Road. His first book, The Black Tattoo, was published in 2006. His follow- up to The Black Tattoo (but not a sequel), Tim, Defender of the Earth is, as he modestly puts it, Phase Two of my sinister masterplan to conquer the universe!

TIM Defender of the Earth

TIM Defender of the Earth

Author: Sam Enthoven Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/10/2014

TIM is Tyrannosaurus Improved Model. He's a genetically modified dinosaur that the government have been growing in a secret bunker under Trafalgar Square. And he's on the loose, after the Prime Minister decides he's just too expensive to keep. He's huge and clumsy, and with just a few steps could crush much of central London. He tries to get away but something's calling him back... Professor Mallahide is very very clever. But also slightly crazy. He's developed an amazing new invention, where nanotechnology means that objects and even people can be taken apart, remodelled, changed and used for any purpose. It's an incredible tool - but also could be a very dangerous weapon in the wrong hands. Unfortunately it's in the hands of a mad scientist... Chris and Anna are caught up in something very big and scary. Can these two kids help at all as TIM and Professor Mallahide do battle? A spectacular novel of goodies and baddies fighting it out in London, using Big Ben as a spear and throwing themselves into Buckingham Palace. Hilarious, wild and utterly original.

The Black Tattoo

The Black Tattoo

Author: Sam Enthoven Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/08/2007

Jack doesn't know what he's got himself into. One minute he and his best friend Charlie were up in Chinatown having crispy duck with Charlie's dad (and Jack was having to listen to Charlie shouting at his dad for leaving his mum) - then next minute they were in a mysterious room above a theatre, with some of the strangest characters they'd ever encountered. And they were about to take The Test. . . and something very very weird was about to begin. The Test transforms Charlie - leaving him with the distinctive markings of the Black Tattoo - and with a temper that seems out of control. The boys' meeting with Esme, a young girl with the most impressive martial arts skills this side of Bruce Lee, her huge and hairy father Raymond, and the mysterious Nick seem to have swept Charlie and Jack into a world they had no idea existed. And it's only going to get stranger. . . This epic tale of good and evil, demons and hell, vomiting bats and huge battles marks the debut of an incredible new talent for children's books. Drawing on influences such as comic books, computer games and Eastern martial arts, The Black Tattoo is a book no self-respecting teenage boy will want to miss.
