Super excited, and possibly a little bit scared, to be revealing the monster cover of Justin Davies’ second book,Whoa! I Spy a Werewolf , which will be published on the 9th January by Orchard (Hachette). Not long to go!
So, with out further chatter from me, here is the glorious cover illustrated by Kim Geyer and designed by Lynne Manning.
“I’ve been thrilled with the response to my debut, and now can’t wait to unleash even more monster mayhem with Whoa! I Spy a Werewolf. I love Kim’s scarily brilliant illustrations – they bring my characters to monstrous life!” Justin Davies
Isn’t it clever?! I’m loving the wolf-shaped cloud framing the title – great work Kim and Lynne!
In Help! I Smell a Monster, Alice MacAlister saves the world and finds out that she’s a monster. Now, in Whoa! I Spy a Werewolf, the twelve-year-old werewolf is back and thrilled to be nominated for a Nessie award in the Bravest Monster category. She can’t wait to meet the ceremony’s host, celebrity werewolf vlogger, Kiki. But Kiki isn’t at all how Alice imagined she’d be. In fact, she doesn’t seem like a werewolf at all . . .
Alice and her new friend, a young French werewolf named Louis, smell a rat. But when an ancient shapeshifter steals Alice’s body and goes on a crime spree, she finds herself in trouble with the human police AND vampire secret agents!
Can Alice and her monster friends prove her innocence and stop the shapeshifter from destroying the world?
Monster mayhem! Frightfully funny and perfect for fans of Pamela Butchart and David Solomons.
Justin Davies: Like all superheroes, Justin leads a double life. In one, he flies around the world in his job as cabin crew, visiting all the places he found in his atlas as a boy. But instead of a superhero cape and really embarrassing pants, Justin prefers to wear a big smile and a clip-on tie when he goes to work. One of his coolest superpowers is languages – he speaks French, Spanish and German! In his other life, Justin lives with his husband in Scotland, where he writes books which he hopes will make you laugh. Justin’s favourite smells are new shoes, cheese toasties, and cake.
Kim Geyer: Kim was a textile designer before she took up the illustration pencil. Her favourite picture book is The Tiger Who Came To Tea by Judith Kerr. Now illustrating picture books and middle grade fiction, Kim lives in London with a house full of pets. She loves bugs and plants and her favourite colour is green.
