We are thrilled to officially reveal the incredible cover for The Paninis of Pompeii by Andy Stanton, illustrated by Sholto Walker.
The Paninis of Pompeii is the long-awaited new series from the comic genius behind Mr Gum and Natboff!, multi-award-winning author Andy Stanton.
Overflowing with Andy’s trademark wordplay and surreal escapades, this is definitely not the Pompeii you learnt about in history class.
About The Paninis of Pompeii
Welcome to the last days of Pompeii as you’ve NEVER imagined them before!
Join fart-trader Caecilius, his wife, Vesuvius, and their ten-year-old son, Filius, in a bizarre world of accidental gladiators, pizza-emitting volcanoes and the legendary Ma-wol-n-f. You’ll meet the household servant, Slavius; thrill at the misadventures of Barkus Wooferinicum and generally have an uproariously hilarious time of it all.
Full of ludicrous characters – if you thought Mr Gum was weird, then get a load of the Ancient Pompeiians.
The Paninis of Pompeii is the first in a hilarious new series that will have 7+ readers howling with laughter.
