Hello! You are reading this in order to determine whether or not this book will be of interest to you! Well, congratulations, you obviously have fabulous taste! Zeb and the Great Ruckus is a story about magic, music, fireworks, bewilderbeasts, clockwork birds and weaponised toffee. It has some funny bits, some scary bits, some sad bits, and a rather large bit about a cave-dwelling ruttersnarl which we would tell you about but we don’t want to give away the ending. If you like the sounds of any or all of the above, then this is the book for you! If you would rather read a complete history of European haberdashery, please consult your local book emporium.
When my first book came out, I had emails from people all over the world telling me that it had made them laugh, made them want to travel, helped them deal with the passing of a loved one. Touching the life of someone who lives on the other side of the world that you’ve never even met, you can’t put a price on that. With this book, I want to encourage a generation of children to pick up pens and paintbrushes and plectrums and start an artistic insurrection. That said, it’s a book for grown ups too. My other job is I work as a music journalist, so I’ve filled with heaps of obscure jazz and blues references that music nerds will love and lots of humour inspired by Roald Dahl and Calvin and Hobbes.
As both a teacher and writer, I don’t see my job as information transmission so much as soliciting a love of curiosity, investigation and imagination. I think we need to teach kids to have a love of exploration of the world through both logical and creative means. As Einstein famously said, ‘imagination is more important that knowledge’. I want a world where art and science high five each other on a regular basis instead of glowering at each other across the playground.
