Archie Kimpton - Author

About the Author

Ever since reading 'sodium monofluorophosphate' on the side of a toothpaste tube, Archie Kimpton has enjoyed putting words together and seeing what comes out. He graduated from Manchester University in 1991 and has spent the last twenty years in preparation for this moment of authordom - flogging salami, script writing, book binding and care working in the interim.

Jumblecat is his first novel.

He lives in south London with his wife, kids and Doonican, the diabetic cat and sometime-inspiration for his animal cruelty based stories (only joking, Dooni).

The Porridge of Knowledge

Author: Archie Kimpton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/05/2015

Magic gloop, evil baddies and a ridiculous amount of food abound in this super-silly story Milk lives in the grubby seaside town of Slopp-on-Sea - a rubbish name for a rubbish town. But Milk's life is pretty rubbish too, so it fits. She loves her Granddad, but nowadays he's always wandering off somewhere, or asking her befuddled questions. Then one day, he comes back from one of his jaunts with a battered book in his hand containing a recipe for THE PORRIDGE OF KNOWLEDGE. Intrigued, Milk enlists the help of her friend Carp to try the recipe. At first it looks like all they've managed to create is a lump of malodorous goo - but then they notice the ants (who have been nibbling the porridge) building a mashed potato replica of the leaning tower of Pisa... So they decide to try it out on themselves. And the results are incredible! Suddenly Milk and Carp are the cleverest people in town - and Granddad is back to his normal self. Milk and Carp are about to discover that sometimes a little bit of knowledge goes a long way...

Jumblecat

Jumblecat

Author: Archie Kimpton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/07/2014

A hilarious and madcap adventure from a delightfully quirky debut author Billy Slipper is a fairly normal boy with a definitely not-so-fairly normal family. All he wants to do is add to his 'Collectabillya' (an assortment of weird and wonderful objects he finds) in peace, but his cleaning-mad mum (she even clingfilms the carrots!) and his fantastically horrid twin sister have other ideas. However, they don't bargain on Billy finding his best ever Collectabillya - Jumblecat! Jumblecat is a . . . well, a jumbled-up cat (who talks, by the way), and he's set to change the Slippers' lives forever. With the help of his batty old-lady next-door-neighbour, Billy must battle to win the town pet show (top prize: GBP10,000), find a vet who can un-jumble Jumblecat (price: GBP10,000), RESCUE Jumblecat when he is stolen (culprit: an insane taxidermy-obsessed general) - and then stop Jumblecat from getting stuffed, all with the help of his dad's milk float. Sounds easy? Well, you just haven't met Jumblecat yet. Beautifully illustrated by the Greenaway Medal nominated artist Kate Hindley, JUMBLECAT is sure to capture your heart.
