My new series Nit Boy has just hit Australian shelves. The first book is Lift Off! and the second is Bug Out! It's for anyone who's ever had nits or had to deal with nits. It's all about Lewis, the kid with the worst case of nits in world history and Ned, one of the nits who lives on his head. It features amazing illustrations by Heath McKenzie.
The Byron Bay launch happens at Byron Library, 4pm on 14 May 2009. The Sydney launch event is a round table session with a milkshake at Shearer's bookshop in Leichardt on Tuesday 19 May. Hope you can come along!
The Nit Boy competition with prizes including Wii games goes live on Monday at www.nitboy.com and, coming soon, is the 3D animated Nit Boy trailer by Peter Leary at Melbourne company, The Animators. Here's a sneak peek at the trailer below, a shot of one of the stars of Nit Boy - Ned, the nit.
