‘A thrilling journey into a magical world packed with Rob’s brilliant humour.’ – David Walliams

Some legends are born, some are drawn . . .

Drawing feels like magic to Peanut Jones. But art can’t fix her problems. Her dad has gone missing, and she’s stuck in a boring new school. Until the day she finds a unique pencil turbo-charged with special powers. Suddenly she’s pulled into a world packed with more colour, creativity, excitement and danger than she could ever have imagined. And maybe, just maybe, she might find out what happened to her dad.

‘Peanut Jones is AWESOME. I loved this book from start to finish – the story is packed with twists and turns, and Rob’s illustrations are full of wit and warmth . . . I need to know what happens next!’ – Nadia Shireen

‘A wildly imaginative, big-hearted celebration of creativity’ – Anna James, bestselling author of the Pages & Co series

‘Look at this utter beauty . . . This book is EPIC’ – Laura Ellen Anderson, bestselling author of Amelia Fang

Publisher Review

Rob Biddulph is one of my favourite illustrators and authors. Peanut Jones and the Illustrated City is a thrilling journey into a magical world packed with Rob's brilliant humour. It is also the most wonderfully designed book I have seen in ages. * David Walliams * Goodness me, THIS BOOK. Rob Biddulph has only gone & done it again. Committed the ultimate crime of being FAR TOO AWESOME. I mean, look at this utter beauty?! Those illustrations. This book is EPIC -- Laura Ellen Anderson A wildly imaginative, big-hearted celebration of creativity -- Anna James, bestselling author of the Pages & Co series A masterful mix of art, heart and edge-of-your-seat adventure. I love Peanut Jones! -- Sibeal Pounder Fresh and original, it's full of Biddulph's characteristic warmth and, of course, his striking illustrations. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller * This is a beautiful book, the images on the page and the magnificent imagery created by the words exist in perfect harmony, each helping the other to tell the story of Peanut's emotions and journey. There is a real joy in this book, one of finding strength and friendships along with the sting of real life and the pain of losing a parent. Like Rob Biddulph says, 'Some legends are born, others are drawn...' and Peanut Jones and her plight are most definitely that of a legend. * ReadingZone *
