Jim Smith graduated from art school and went on to create the branding for the Puccino coffee shops. He also designs stationary, cards and gifts under the name Waldo Pancake. He is the author and illustrator of the award winning Barry Loser series.
When Melvin Pebbles moves to the town of Donut Island, he has no idea what’s in store: before he’s even unpacked his vast collection of toy bags (unopened, toys still inside to preserve the mystery), he’s been adopted into the Daily Donut Club by new friend, Rhubarb Plonsky, and by the end of the book, together with third Donut Club member Yoshi Fujikawa, will have foiled an alien invasion and bid to brainwash his new neighbours. As you’d expect from the creator of the inimitable Barry Loser series, this is a blissfully surreal mystery adventure, as weird as it is wonderful, and certain to have readers laughing out loud from beginning to end. Jim Smith’s illustrations are as playful as the plot, and make the whole package even more of a treat. Comic genius!
At last, a book to celebrate scootermania! A variety of kids and scooters glide across the pages, depicted in Jim Smith’s instantly recognisable, bright, cartoony illustrations. Katie Blackburn’s rhyming text sets up all sorts of scooter scenarios, and each page has a different scooter adventure, from ‘sunny day’ and ‘caught in a shower’, to ‘covered in stickers’ and ‘flower power’. It’s huge fun to look at and to read out loud. One, two, three, Scoot! ~ Andrea Reece
