Cover Reveal: The Latest From Frank Cottrell Boyce

I am lucky in my profession.  Lucky not simply because I have a blog where I am offered the chance to reveal the American cover of Frank Cottrell Boyce’s latest book The Astounding Broccoli Boy.  No, I’m lucky because I work in a profession where I even know who Boyce is and how fantastic his books can be.  And if you’ve read Millions or Cosmic or The Unforgotten Coat then you know what I’m talking about.  His latest is an exercise is absurdity that maybe owes more to Cervantes or maybe Ionesco than your average everyday middle grade novel.

Here then, is his latest cover.

Rory, the main character, is half-Guyanese by the way.  And penguins make everything good.

Beautiful.
