Tracey Corderoy and Steven Lenton
Appearing: Saturday 2017
Tracey was born and grew up in industrial South Wales and now lives in a hidden valley in Gloucestershire with her husband, two children and an ever-increasing menagerie of devilishly-cute-but-sometimes-rather-naughty pets. A trained teacher, Tracey has always had a passion for wonderful literature and began writing for children in 2006. Her head is happily crammed with countless ideas and stories and she loves the adventures that her characters insist they share.
Steven hails from Cheshire where he spent many a school holiday working in the family pom-pom factory, packing poms and designing new products. Since this somewhat fluffy start to his career, he has gained a BA and MA in Animation and has become a successful animator and art director within the realms of children’s television. Steven also designs greetings cards and prints. His main ambition has always been to be a children’s book-maker and he is very proud to be realising this dream with Nosy Crow. Steven lives with his dog in Crouch End where he dunks endless amounts of hob-nobs (other biscuits are available) in big red spotty cups of tea whilst listening to Radio 2.
Shifty McGifty Up Up and Away
Three more stories of bravery and derring-do from our favourite baker boys! The much-loved picture book pair of pooches continue their adventures in a two-colour fiction format, ideal for children growing in confidence as readers and beginning to read alone.
In the title story, Shifty and Sam lead the way in a wacky race that has been sabotaged by the one and only Red Rocket! But they soon thwart his dastardly ways and the rightful winner takes home the prize.
When a mysterious parcel is delivered to the cafe, both Shifty and Sam claim ownership. A rift grows between the boys until a small knight rides to the rescue.
Rich old Lady Poshington is staying at the fanciest hotel in town, just as a spate of burglaries takes place. Can Shifty and Sam go undercover to catch the thief?
Brilliant stories hilariously told by Tracey Corderoy and beautifully brought to life by Steven Lenton’s illustrations. Everybody welcome!
