He's determined to train his new puppy. Sit. Stay. Fetch. What could go wrong? It's just that Edgar's dog happens to be an octopus. A peculiarly brilliant octopus at that.
Edgar's life is about to change forever."
Sidney Morning Herald:
"Absurd without being abstract, it tells the story of a young boy, Edgar, and his over-achieving pet Jarvis, an octopus the boy desperately wishes was a dog.
The book brims with humour, from the odd-couple pairing of serious, blazer-and-tie-wearing Edgar with Jarvis the silly, slippery spectacle, to the concept of an octopus trying to pass as a dog (let alone a fruit-turban-topped octopus playing piano while juggling and ballet dancing). The minimal text means the expressive, fun illustrations deliver the punchlines. The message - to accept others as they are and see the value in that - is worthwhile, too."
"This is an adorable picture book for all readers. What a wonderfully enjoyable picture book that had me giggling while reading it. "

If you're still keen, all entries will be considered, and here's a smattering of critical feedback to give you a taster:
"One wild trip... Plays with story and character conventions much as Alan Moore did with 'Watchmen'." [Geek Magazine]
"Excellent... with a strong look into the world of superheroes, Who is Killing The Great Capes of Heropa? provides readers with an enthralling, page-turning read that provides not only great things for fans of comics to enjoy, but fans of novels too. A lot of fun.” [The Founding Fields]
"Like a crazy, post‐modern road trip with Jack Kirby riding shotgun, and everyone from Stan Lee to Raymond Chandler nattering away in the back seat." [The Thrilling Detective]
"In this almost through-the-looking-glass universe, there's so much going on that this isn't the sort of novel you only read the once. I'm sure I missed loads so will be going back in, but with a sense of anticipation and excitement as this time I know the treat that lies ahead." [The Bookbag] [close]

In this second book of the popular Land of Nod Trilogy, Jeff Browning continues his quest to find his father in the strange new world he has discovered. His journey takes him across a savage wilderness in which danger is inescapable.
While Jeff searches for The Prophet, his friend, Artimus, faces a less obvious but just as deadly maze of political conspiracies as he tries to convince a reluctant public that the invasion he helped thwart was only the beginning of a much more serious threat.
An epic science fiction, fantasy adventure with action and intrigue on every page.
