Author(s): Peter Bently
The atmosphere is electric out in the farmyard. Old Farmer Clegg may be tucked up for the night, but there's a talent show about to take place and all the animals are desperate to win. Will a break-dancing horse take the top spot? Will the pop-singing sheep twins be offered a record contract? Competition is fierce, but nobody's counted on a certain farmer with a sleepwalking habit! With laugh-out-loud text and lively, comedic illustrations - not to mention a pig mariachi band - this fun-packed book will delight both boys and girls alike.
Peter Bently lives in the writer-filled town of Totnes with his wife and a ready-made audience of two young children. A prolific picture-book author, he enjoys visiting schools and sharing his writing. Peter has previously published two books with Macmillan: the terrifically toothy THE SHARK IN THE DARK (978 0 230 70735 1) with illustrator Ben Cort, and the irresistible CATS AHOY! (978 0 330 51880 2) with Jim Field. Jim Field is a lead-driven, pencil-pushing, 25-frames-per-second, Led Zeppelin fan. He is also a hugely talented illustrator and animation director whose previous clients have included Waterstones, Sainsbury's, Oxfam, The Independent, The Guardian, The FT, Channel 4, Virgin Mobile and Nokia. FARMER CLEGG'S NIGHT OUT is his second picture book and Jim has once again employed his vibrant, energetic style and witty detail to brilliant effect.
