World Domination Machines

The Just Imagine Story Centre ran a competition with Elsenham Primary school for the kids to design their own World Domination Machines much like the one from Weasels. There were some particularly brilliant machines with a range of features, aside from the usual switches and buttons, including Sky TV, a collection of trophies, some kind of homicidal dog and a cosy little bed and breakfast. Here are the finalists:

And here's the most excellent winner by one Josiah. It seems to have both a quiet area and a pitch n' putt. Congratulations Josiah!

Weasel nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

To celebrate my book Weasels being shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal (these are both rather good things in the heady world of children’s books) I’ve created a montage of my favorite bits from the book. If it's a little small here there's a bigger version here on my tumblr.

Want to know what on earth any of this is about? Well you can get a copy of Weasels from here, here and here.
