Mega Mash-Up: Pirates v Ancient Egyptians in a Haunted Museum – out now!

What if some bloodthirsty Pirates and crazy Ancient Egyptians broke into a Haunted Museum? Would you ask yourself what the world was coming to? Or would you reach for your felt-tips, realising that another 96 pages of zany excellence had hit the bookstores? Yes, today’s the day the fourth MEGA MASH-UP book by Nikalas Catlow and Tim Wesson is published!

PIRATES V ANCIENT EGYPTIANS IN A HAUNTED MUSEUM is a wacky tale told at breakneck speed with hilarious illustrations to finish, add to and even start from scratch. These books invite you in, sit you down on a whoopee cushion, and tell you to get stuck in.

I saw Nikalas and Tim at their latest event at the Bath Festival this weekend. They invented characters, put them in hilarious situations, and then added a flatulent chicken for good measure, all the while asking for suggestions and input from their captivated audience. (Just don’t ask them to draw a fluffy bunny, mind…)

Inspirational stuff. A real case of DO try this at home.

Congratulations, Nikalas and Tim, on another brilliant book!
