There’s the Cuckoo-Clocktopus, the Scary Shocktopus, the tasty Toffee Choctopus and the pink-cheeked Party Frocktopus. Get ready to wave your arms with glee! A wonderfully comical novelty book of lifting flaps, moving parts and octopussy shocks from master author-illustrator Nick Sharratt.

Nick Sharratt needs little introduction with books going down a storm time and time again. He has written and illustrated many books for children, and also enjoys great success illustrating books for Jacqueline Wilson and Jeremy Strong.

He was born in 1962 and trained at the St Martin’s School of Art. Inspired by 1960s pop and graphic art, his work is instantly recognisable for its bold images and punchy colours. With lots of moving tabs, flaps to lift and other interactive features, as well as exciting wordplay and cheeky humour, Nick’s books let children discover all the different ways in which books and words can work.

He lives and works in Brighton, in a studio overlooking the sea.

    Passes the toddler test

    My two year old LOVES Nick Sharratt’s fantastic novelty books. They’re bursting with crazy characters and all round silliness, and have sturdy flaps and novelties that little hands can manage. And, vitally for parents, there’s a satisfying rhyming text that stands any number of re-readings.
