Cover Reveal – Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink by Jennifer Killick

I’m really excited to be sharing with you today the cover of Jennifer Killick’s hilarious debut middle grade novel, ‘Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink’ will be published on the 8th June 2017  by Firefly Press.

So without further ado here it is…….


I love this vibrant cover designed by Alex Dimond, featuring the artwork of Heath McKenzie. Full of energy and humour, it hints at the mischief and chaos that Alex and Jess will face as they try to unravel the mystery that is affecting their whole school. Let’s find out exactly what the ‘really big stink’ is in this exciting new laugh out loud fantasy school adventure.

Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink

Alex Sparrow is a super-agent in training. He is also a human lie-detector. Working with Jess – who can communicate with animals – they must find out why their friends – and enemies – are all changing into polite and well behaved pupils. And exactly who is behind it all. It’s a funny, middle grade novel  packed full of humour and superhero references. Oh, and a rather clever goldfish called Bob. In a world where kid’s flaws and peculiarities are being erased out of existence, Alex and Jess must rely on what makes them different to save the day.

Jennifer Killick


Jennifer Killick has always wanted to be a writer, but really started when she applied for a Creative Writing MA at Brunel University, which is where she first got the idea for ‘The Really Big Stink’. She lives in Uxbridge, in a house full of children, animals and Lego. When she isn’t busy mothering or step-mothering (which isn’t often) she loves to read, write and run, as fast as she can. Jennifer’s favourite things are books, trees and fluffy slippers, and her favourite place in the world is her home, where she can sit in her pyjamas with tea and cake, coming up with story ideas.

Thank you to Jennifer and Firefly Press for inviting me to do the cover reveal, I can’t wait to get my hands on this book I think it will be hugely appealing and I will definitely be adding this to my school library.
