Andy Griffiths and Paul Jennings - author websites


Andy Griffiths  is one of the most popular authors in our library, and lots of you think he's really funny! His sense of humour is wild, wacky, and a little bit gross...and his website tells you a lot more about him, and about his books.  And yes - it's definitely on the weird side! Click on his picture below to find his site.

Paul Jennings is another author whose books are offbeat and funny.  He writes books for all ages, from the 'Rascal the Dragon' series on our Star Bookshelf, to the 'Uncovered ' series on our senior fiction shelves.

Which author do you think has the best website, and why?
There's a prize for the best answer.....

...and don't forget to check out all the other great author websites on the blog - links are along the right-hand side.

Fore Edge Painting

Books and art have always had a really close relationship, but not always in the most obvious ways...

Here is an old form of book art: handpainted scenes on page edges, that can only be seen if the pages are bent a little.

Have a look at the link below, and imagine the patience the artist had to have - all to make a piece of hidden artwork!
