Kate says: “Nikalas and Tim talked about this idea at their first meeting with us. When they came back with it worked up, we made them an offer in five minutes. We loved the mad combinations and the short, action-packed chapters; the illustrations made us laugh; and the opportunity for readers to interact with books by adding their own drawings was a great new angle. I know lots of boys who hardly read standard-format books, but who like to make their own comics, and thought that these were a perfect combination of narrative and doodling that could help turn the most reluctant reader into a more enthusiastic one.”
Nikalas and Tim say: “We came up with the idea for Mega Mash-Up in our local cafe in Peckham Rye park while mulling over our recent drawing book projects. We realized that we could fuse fiction and activity books. Several cups of tea later, we had written a rough outline for the first book. The Mega Mash-Up series is about exploring the impossible through drawing. We were excited about the prospect of crashing several popular things together in one book, creating a world without constraints, and allowing young artists’ creativity to soar. It’s fiction, Jim, but not as we know it! Oh, and we’re really happy to be working with Nosy Crow. They’re unbelievably quick and decisive. What’s more, they get really excited about children’s books and their enthusiasm and direct approach means they get the best out of us!”
