Eric Heyman served in the South Wales fire and rescue service for three decades before retiring to pursue a career in illustration. Completely self-taught, he has been inspired since childhood by such greats as Ronald Searle, Ken Anderson, Mary Blair, Quentin Blake and Mike Mignola. When he's not drawing Vikings, pirates and trolls, you'll find him walking his beagle, Bella, and searching for dragons in the hills of his native Wales.
Pity the poor McScurvy children, Vic and Bert – they used to sail the ocean with their pirate parents, until they lost their ship. Now they have to wear shoes and do homework. And their baby sister Maud is an absolute terror, a blue-eyed, golden-haired tyrant! Maud it is who sparks the adventure, one that will bring the children – and some newly made frenemies – up against Captain Guillemot the Third, aka the Hipster Ripster. At stake is their ship, their future, and the family treasure the Blighty Bling. It’s fast and funny, and a great example of kids versus adults adventure: the junior McScurvys may squabble a bit, but they are loyal, brave and determined. Great fun, and Eric Heyman’s black and white illustrations add to the sense of excitement and adventure.
The Princess is getting ready for her ball at the palace of Par Ping. She's starting to feel nervous. What happens if she pumps or parps or does bum-blasts or toots, bottom-burps, whizpops or poots? That shouldn't be a problem though, as everyone knows princesses don't pump... A new laugh-out-loud new text from Peter Bently, author of Meet the Parents and Dustbin Dad.
