Magic gloop, evil baddies and a ridiculous amount of food abound in this super-silly story

About the Author

Archie KimptonEver since reading 'sodium monofluorophosphate' on the side of a toothpaste tube, Archie Kimpton has enjoyed putting words together and seeing what comes out. He graduated from Manchester University in 1991 and has spent the last twenty years in preparation for this moment of authordom - flogging salami, script writing, book binding and care working in the interim. JUMBLECAT was his first novel. He lives in south London with his wife, kids and Doonican, the diabetic cat and sometime-inspiration for his animal cruelty based stories (only joking, Dooni).

She studied illustration at Falmouth College of Art, and went on to work for two years as a children's print designer at a studio in Northampton, whilst working on children's books and greetings cards. She has exhibited with her good chums Girls Who Draw and Inkygoodness across the UK, and had a jolly good time painting up a totem pole for the Pictoplasma Character Walk exhibition 2011. Things Kate finds inspiring include Bob Godfrey, Richard Scarry, The Magic Roundabout (in particular Dougal and the Blue Cat), and Sharps Doom Bar. Kate's first picture book THE GREAT SNORTLE HUNT, written by Claire Freedman, was published by Simon & Schuster in August 2013, and was longlisted for the 2013 Kate Greenaway Medal.

Reviews

Magic gloop and evil baddies abound in a playful comedy adventure from the JUMBLECAT author. * The Bookseller (Children's Previews) *
This is a delightfully nutty story, fizzing with energy, colourful characters and a lively use of language. -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail (Praise for JUMBLECAT) *
