Cover Reveal: Diary of a Penguin-napper


I can hardly believe this day has arrived. I keep having to rub my eyes and look again.  I’m just so excited to be able to share with you the cover design for Diary of a Penguin-napper which will be released in November 2012!

Are you ready?  Not quite?  Okay, well here’s the blurb to get you in the mood:

3 weeks …

2 boys … 

1 little penguin …

 What could possibly go wrong?

When 11 (and a half) year old Marty is partnered up with Jessica on the overnight science trip, he thinks all of this dreams are about to come true.  It’s his big chance to impress the most beautiful girl in Year 7 (and probably the world) and he wouldn’t miss it for anything.

Only problem is: Marty can’t afford to go on the overnight trip. Yet.

Inspired by the urban myth that it is possible to steal a penguin from the zoo on a school visit, Diary of a Penguin-napper is a hilarious tale of growing up, bending the rules and how one big fuss can be caused by stealing just one little penguin. 

Ready now?  Of course you are.  Here you go:


Huge thanks and full credit must go to Andrew Brown of Design for Writers.  You can check out more of his work at and take my recommendation – he is 100% absolutely totally brilliant to work with!

While you’re waiting for the book to come out in November, don’t forget you can always read Chapter One!
