Lucy Brandt’s Leonora Bolt: Eco Engineer published today by Puffin
Simon Mockler‘s Beatrix the Bold and the Curse of the Wobblers, the first book in an enchanting new middle grade trilogy, is to be published by Piccadilly Press, an imprint of Bonnier Zaffre.
This new series is full of humour, heart and silliness and features bold and brilliant young heroine Beatrix and her trusty sidekicks Wilfred and Wise, Oi the Boy and Dog the Dog. With shades of Mr Gum, SHREK and The Princess Bride, this is a fairy tale parody with a vibrant fresh feel.
Northbank agent Chloe Seager said:
‘As soon as I started reading Beatrix the Bold, I fell in love with Simon Mockler’s fearless, smart and funny heroine. I’m so pleased she and Simon have found the perfect home with Piccadilly Press and I can’t wait for readers to fall in love with her as well.’
Author Simon said:
‘I’m really excited to be working with the fantastic team at Piccadilly Press on these three books and can’t wait for Beatrix the Bold to be launched into the world.’
Beatrix the Bold and the Curse of the Wobblers will be published in April 2019, with the second and third books to follow in September 2019 and February 2020 respectively.
