Okay humans, listen up! Comic creator Neill Cameron – perhaps best known for his work on The Phoenix – is now also a novelist!
Freddy vs. School, published by David Fickling Books, is out next month, a funny tale centring on… well, why don’t we just let you read the pitch?
“My name is FREDDY. I live with my Mum and Dad. I go to school. Oh yeah, the MAIN thing: I am an AWESOME ROBOT! With awesome robotic SUPERPOWERS! But I’m hardly ever allowed to USE them, and definitely not at SCHOOL. Which is going to be a PROBLEM… “
A hilarious first nove from Neill Cameron, Freddy vs. School is on sale from all good bookshops from 7th January 2021.
Neill Cameron is a cartoonist and writer, creator of Mega Robo Bros, Mo-Bot High, The Pirates of Pangaea (with Daniel Hartwell), Tamsin and the Deep (with Kate Brown), and the instructional How To Make Awesome Comics. His work has appeared in the weekly children’s comic The Phoenix since 2011.
Both Mega Robo Bros and Tamsin and the Deep were both shortlisted for the British Comics Awards in 2016 and Mega Robo Bros won the Excelsior Award Jr the following year, a national comic award voted for by school and library reading groups across the UK.
