TEN LITTLE PIRATES is published today! ARRRRRRR!

It's an epic tale of sea battles, sharks, hurricanes, giant squids, alluring mermaids, mayhem, destruction and sea-faring thrills and spills. It even has a happy ending... and all this in less than 250 words.

Many thanks to Frances Elks and all at Orchard Books, and Simon Rickerty for his inspired illustrations. Me and the Ten Little Pirates all say "TAAAAAAA!"

At a recent exhibition of mine, there was quite a bit of interest in the two mega-pop-ups I did a little while ago. I thought I'd show a few more images, first from 'Dinosaurs of Doom!' published by MacMillan Children's Books. Come on... dinosaurs with laser beams. What's not to like?

Yes lets. Random House have bought those dinos, which I am not a little pleased about!

Here's the cover for the second book of mine published this month. Called 'Make It! Rocket', it's published by Scholastic Children's Books in the UK. France, Portugal and the Netherlands. You can make the rocket as well as read the story. Sci-fi for pre-schoolers!

As it's not due out for seven days, I'm only going to show you the back page for now. I'm mean like that.

More next week if you're good and promise not to go plundering the Spanish Main again.

Thanks Paul! It wasn't on any forum discussion either, but now I know!

It is. Something started by Maureen Lynas up in Newcastle. It's a great idea and all I had to do was send them a few recent illustrations and let their team of writers chose their favourites. It's becoming popular with schools apparently. I see you've trained your beard into the shape of a cat. Well done, that man!

Here's a picture of the books of mine that were released into the wild this week by Scholastic. Probably the only occasion I'll ever have to say "I had two books published today."

Introduction

I write and illustrate children's books and stuff.

I’ve produced work for a wide range of publishers including Bloomsbury, OUP, Ragged Bears, Harper Collins, Macmillans, Scholastic, Piccadilly Press, Peaceable Kingdom Press, Simon and Schuster, and Orchard. 

My second book – ‘Little Robots’ – was made into a stop-motion animated TV series. There have been 65 episodes made so far, and the show has been sold all round the world. I wrote several of the episodes, which was fun.

I live in Somerset in England with my wife.

You can see more examples of my work at my website: www.mikebrownlow.com.

 

 

Bragging rights
I have four books coming out this year, two that I've written and illustrated, one that I've illustrated and one that I've written that someone else is illustrating.
