Here’s a sneaky peak at some work-in-progress over at BB HQ. This Book is Funny! is a scheme dedicated to reviewing and promoting books for children by the funniest writers, illustrators and comics artists in the business today. It was conceived by author Alex Milway and is run by a a co-operative of authors, comics artists and illustrators, with support from publishers, libraries and schools worldwide. The scheme was hatched when Scholastic published revealing research which suggested that 70% of kids surveyed preferred books which made them laugh. Alex felt that a scheme to celebrate funny books would help to encourage children to read, particularly the 73% who said they’d read more if they could find books they liked. The Funny website is currently in beta mode, whilst the scheme gathers pace. Keep ’em peeled for our jolly logo appearing on kids books near you, soon.
