Knight Sir Louis
A middle-grade children’s book published by Guppy Books (June 2020). Knight Sir Louis is a brave knight in a bonkers world.
Independent publisher Guppy Books is delighted to announce the acquisition of a hilarious new middle-grade series written and illustrated by Greg and Myles McLeod, who are also known as The Brothers McLeod, a five times BAFTA nominated animation company.
Bella Pearson says; “It isn’t often that a book makes me laugh out loud, but this one had me in stitches from the very first page. I’m so thrilled to be working with the talented Brothers McLeod and can’t wait for readers to encounter this fantastically bonkers book.”
The “Knight Sir Louis” books will tell the story of the bravest knight in all the land (unless he’s faced with a wasp), as he strives to save his kingdom from disaster after disaster – accompanied by his trusty robot steed Sir Clunkalot and his magical sword, Dave. With the zany narrative humour, a cast of quirky characters and integrated black and white illustrations throughout, they will appeal to fans of the “13 Storey Treehouse” and “Mr Gum” books.
Myles and Greg: “It’s a great joy for us to know that Knight Sir Louis is going to be able to ride out from our imaginations and into the world. We feel very lucky to have Bella and the team at Guppy Books championing the cause of this brave knight! We’ve created a world full of fun and silliness. Let’s face it, the world needs some of that right now.”
Gaia Banks, literary agent added: “I am delighted that Greg and Myles will be published by Guppy Books. Bella so impressed us with her energy and enthusiasm, and Knight Sir Louis is in the best possible hands.”
Knight Sir Louis and the Damsel of Distresse, will publish June 2020. It is suitable for ages 6 and up.
