Next month, we are INCREDIBLY pleased to launch The Invincibles, a brand new, two-colour illustrated fiction series by Caryl Hart and Sarah Warburton, the incredible author-illustrator duo behind the Princess and the… picture books. The series will begin with The Invincibles: The Piglet Pickle – finished copies have just arrived in the office, and today you can take a look inside for the first time.
In this first story, troublesome twosome Nell and Freddie go on a school trip to a farm, where they pet the animals and learn about how they live, and Freddie smuggles a piglet out in his backpack. Nell keeps it in her bedroom, gives it a bath and involves it in bringing a local crime wave to an end (with the help of her hilariously teenaged big brother, Lucas). The they all go home for tea!
Gorgeously illustrated throughout, hilarious, and true to life (just about), these books have the perfect amount of detail and adventure to keep kids coming back to read and read again.
Here’s a look inside The Invincibles: Piglet Pickle:
