I’m really excited to be sharing with you today the cover of the follow up to Jennifer Killick’s hilarious debut middle grade novel, ‘Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink’. ‘Alex Sparrow and the Furry Fury’ is the newest adventure from Alex and Jess and will be published on the 1st May 2018 by Firefly Press.
So without further ado here it is…….
I love this, another stunning, vibrant cover designed by Alex Dimond, featuring again the artwork of Heath McKenzie. Full of energy and humour, it hints at the mystery and mayhem that Alex and Jess will face as they try to unravel the most unexpected clues in their newest investigation.
Alex Sparrow and the Furry Fury
Catching the school’s runaway guinea pigs is not really giving Alex job satisfaction, but how can he find a bigger test for his and Jess’s awkward superpowers? Jess is more worried about the bullied new boy, whose Mum runs the local animal sanctuary. To befriend him she gets a voluntary job there, but she soon realises that something is very wrong; the animals are terrified. People start reporting strange events: things missing, property destroyed, and the local squirrels have turned mean. The police have no suspects. It looks more and more like a job for Agent Alex…
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 as we loved the first book.
