Hack and Whack

Introducing a brand new picture book: Hack and Whack, in which Francesca Simon’s penchant for badly behaved children and Norse mythology combine in a wild rumpus of a story.

‘Stop! Hack and Whack! It’s bedtime. Come back!’

‘NOOOOOOOOOOO We’re Hack and Whack on the attack!’

Hack and Whack – two angelic looking Viking toddler twins – are on the rampage! Desperate to avoid bedtime go marauding around their village, upsetting the apple carts, recruiting other children and causing chaos. But there’s a Viking much more terrifying that them about….their mum. Gloriously funny, slapstick, fast paced action from the queen of funny, with hilarious and yet adorable illustration from debut illustrator Charlotte Cotterill. Young readers will love joining the rebellion and joining in with the terrible twosome.

Charlotte Cotterill is an illustrator currently living and working in Cambridge where she studied MA children’s book illustration. She grew up in Nottinghamshire with her marvellous family. When she’s not drawing Charlotte loves drinking tea, a good natter or hunting for additions to her ever-growing collection of illustrated books. This is her first picture book.
