There are some fantastic new additions to some great comic series here in the library. It’s great to see they have been so popular with readers over summer.
Bad Guys author Aaron Blabey is heading into the movie making business! Yes his award winning talents have caught the eye of DreamWorks Animation who have brought him along for the ride as executive director. One of my favourites of his is The Ghost of Miss Annabel Spoon. I know it sounds serious for a funny writer and illustrator of books but it’s good!
