What are Sandcastle Stompers? Where would you find a Wooden Hill? What would you do with a Brainbox Banana? Who is Pickpocket and how does Soggadrop save the day? Find out when you spend the night with Hickory Horseradish at the Great Castle of Marshmangle...This rhythmic romp with words was Malachy Doyle and artist Paul Hess' first book for Andersen Press. The thrilling perspectives and energetic humour of the pictures match the inventiveness of the text.
Malachy Doyle grew up in Northern Ireland and then studied a Psychology degree in Lancashire. He now lives with his wife and three children and writes full time. Paul Hess went to Art College in Sydney and then worked as an Art Director in Sydney and London. He has worked as a freelance Art Director and Illustrator since 1991. Marshmangle is their first picture book for Andersen Press.
