2018 New Titles & Complete Catalogue


INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the Nosy Crow catalogue 2017 was a big year for Nosy Crow. We were hugely proud to win the Children’s Publisher of the Year award at the British Book Awards and, for the fourth time in our seven-year publishing history, at the Independent Publishing Awards. We ended the year, in sales terms, twice the size we were at the end of 2015. We sold rights in four new languages – Farsi, Luxembourgish, Albanian and Ukranian – to take our tally of languages into which our books have been translated to 39. We moved our office – just around the corner, really, but it has given us a bit of room to breathe. We are now the 13th biggest children’s publisher, based on Nielsen figures, in the UK. We’d like to thank everyone who has helped for all their support – our brilliant authors and illustrators (and their agents), without whom we have nothing to publish; the printers who turn ideas into physical books for us; and anyone who has bought one of our books, ebooks or apps. We are grateful to every single one of our customers, whether they’re individuals or a library, or retailer, or publisher outside the UK. In our 2018 catalogue, you’ll find 107 original books (plus paperbacks and board books) – this is the first year in which we’ll publish over 100 books. Our publishing in collaboration with our partners, the National Trust and the British Museum, goes from strength to strength, and our most ambitious book ever will be published as part of our National Trust partnership: I Am The Seed That Grew The Tree is a huge, beautiful book containing a nature poem for every day of the year and with full-colour illustrations by Frann Preston Gannon on every one of its 336 pages. We’ve other ambitious projects coming out this year too, particularly on our evolving full-colour non-fiction list, including HerStory: 50 Women and Girls Who Shook The World and Welcome To Our World: A Celebration of Children Everywhere, which we feel is a much-needed book in these fragmented times. We’ve superb new books from established stars of our list including Axel Scheffler, Ross Collins, David Solomons, and Pamela Butchart and Thomas Flintham, who will reach a whole new audience as the author and illustrator of Nosy Crow’s first World Book Day £1 book, The Baby Brother from Outer Space. We have new books for many of our strongest series, from new Rescue Princesses stories by Paula Harrison to a new Benji Davies Bizzy Bear book and three new books in our spectacularly successful Felt Flaps series by Ingela P Arrhenius, one of which, Where’s Mr Lion?, won the Sainsbury’s Children’s Book of the Year prize. And we’re proud to present new writing talent too, including Cath Howe, author of Ella on the Outside, contemporary 9+ fiction that will appeal to fans of Jacqueline Wilson and Cathy Cassidy, and Sarah Todd Taylor, author of Max The Detective Cat, a witty mystery with a detective who has a fine set of whiskers and a penchant for fish. New illustrators include Elly Jahnz who is illustrating A Year in Nature: The Children’s Almanac 2019, written by Anna Wilson and published in collaboration with the National Trust. We hope you enjoy our books as much as we’ve enjoyed making them!

The Hedgehog Who Lost His Prickles Jeanne Willis Illustrated by Jarvis

Another fantastically funny picture book from the creative partnership behind Poles Apart and I’m In Charge. Spike, a little hedgehog, has always had impressive prickles. But one morning, after a particularly scary dream, he wakes up completely bare! Oh no! Feeling very embarrassed, he goes in search of something to cover himself, from a paper lampshade to a tea cup to a very stinky sock. But nothing stops the other animals giggling at him. Poor Spike! Then he discovers a big bunch of balloons, which takes him across the world and ends in a very satisfying POP! and a very prickly party.

This quirkily comic series is packed with larger-than-life characters and all manner of disgusting delights!

Oh dear. The Grunts are back. Mr Grunt has to get a POGI (that’s a Person of Great Importance, apparently) to a certain person at a certain time. On an island. And there are others out there who want the POGI for themselves. Add to this the wheelchair-whizzing Speedy McGinty, the mysterious Max and Matha (sharing a single moustache between them) and Rodders Lasenby who’s turned rudeness into a fine art, and you’ll see why the Grunts’ stolen son Sunny doesn’t know who to trust ... or whether Fingers the elephant will sink the boat and leave them all at sea. PRAISE FOR THE GRUNTS IN TROUBLE A Telegraph Top Ten Children’s Book of the Year “clever word-play, irony and plain silliness ... wonderfully incisive and daft illustrations ... laugh out loud.” Telegraph “Their adventures are as unsavoury as they are entertaining ... Fans of Roald Dahl’s The Twits will delight in this disgusting but amiable family.” Guardian

BENJAMIN BLANK loves a scary story as much as a good adventure. The MOON-FACED GHOUL-THING is his favourite. The hollow eyes, the scratchy legs, the razor-sharp claws… Brilliant! But when it actually turns up in his bedroom, Ben decides he doesn’t like the story any more. And he definitely doesn’t want to know how it ends…

Her father works all day, every day, on the their falling-to-bits farm, and the four children are pretty much left to themselves.

She decides to turn it into a theatre and put on a play that she’s written herself. But then the farm is threatened with demolition. Hannah hatches an even more ambitious, top secret plan to help save her family’s home and livelihood. Who can she trust? And what will happen when her dad finds out? A funny, moving story from an exciting new author.
