About the Author

Sue Hendra studied Illustration at Brighton University while also selling doughnuts from a kiosk at Chessington Zoo. Sue has now illustrated over 100 books for children. When Sue met Paul Linnet she found another person with the same silly sense of humour as her and they fell in love and started writing and illustrating together. Their creative brilliance soon led them to come up with a wealth of bestselling, award-winning picture books including Barry the Fish with Fingers, Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell, Supertato and the Laugh Out Loud Book Award winning I Need a Wee. Sue and Paul live in Brighton with their daughter Wanda who inspired Sue's picture book and TV series Wanda and the Alien .

Paul Linnet was born by the sea near to Brighton but he grew up in Derby where he studied Graphic Design and played guitar in a band called The Chihuahuas. Eventually Paul moved back to Brighton where he met Sue Hendra and they instantly fell in love. Their celebrated picture book partnership has created many bestselling, award-winning books including Barry the Fish with Fingers, Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell, Supertato and the Laugh Out Loud Book Award winning I Need a Wee. Sue and Paul live with their daughter Wanda in a house in Brighton where Paul likes to fuss about with an old motorbike and still plays the guitar. Follow Paul on Twitter and Instagram.

Egg

Egg

Author: Sue Hendra, Paul Linnet Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/03/2020

A hilarious picture book about a non-conforming Egg from the bestselling Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. Important note: This book is not like other books. This is a book that even the smallest children can read. This is a book which will stretch your imagination, celebrate difference and fire up your storytelling brain. This is a book with just one word... Egg. When an odd egg turns up with a big head and a pointy bottom, the other eggs don't know what to make of it. Can they make the odd egg conform to Normal Egg Standards? The other eggs try turning it upside down, and even make it wear a hat on its bottom to show which side is 'up', but it takes the clever upside-down egg to show them that eggs can be any way up and still be eggs. Perfect for Easter, or any time of the year, children will love telling the story themselves, looking at the pictures and using different voices for the various 'egg's. Plus the egg-shaped format adds to the eggy fun!

Then Belle has a crafty idea. . . Oh, Christmas Tree! is another hilarious Christmas book from the creative pair behind the bestselling Snowball, Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. This festively funny story is full of their usual warmth and wit, with brilliant characters and a bouncy rhyming text.
