How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportmen
Hoban, Russell

The hilarious, classic tale about the triumph of fooling-around over humorless, no-nonsense, adult disapproval! Written and illustrated by two masters of children's literature.

Tom loves to fool around. He fools around with dropping things from bridges into rivers and he fools around with barrels in alleys. He fools around so much that his maiden aunt, Miss Fidget Wonkham-Strong (who wears an iron hat and takes no nonsense from anyone), sends for Captain Najork and his hired sportsmen to teach Tom a lesson.

"Captain Najork," says Aunt Fidget Wonkham-Strong, "is seven feet tall, with eyes like fire and a voice like thunder. He teaches fooling-around boys the lesson they so badly need, and it is not one that they soon forget." Captain Najork lays down a challenge: they will play womble, muck and speedball - in that order. And it turns out not to be Tom who gets taught a lesson after all!

A very funny collaboration for children by Russell Hoban and Quentin Blake for kids who love to laugh (and the story contiunes in A Near Thing for Captain Najork).

This breakthrough publication promises both to excite and haunt the reader's imagination. Quentin Blake, the so-called Godfather of Illustration, combines his talents with novelist Will Self, "one of the most manically imaginative writers at work today" (Financial Times). The result is a book of irresistible appeal to literature and art lovers alike.

Blake's watercolors relate, with dark, fantastical humor, the experience of journeying across unknown landscapes in the dead of night. Accompanying this artistic narrative is an equally evocative text from the ever-brilliant mind of Will Self. With characteristic sharpness and wit, Self melds fact, fiction, and memory to transport the reader in the most radical way, departing on unexpected trajectories in response to Blake's visual romp through time and space. Together, word and image connect with our deepest sensibilities in Moonlight Travellers as we journey through the landscapes and dreamscapes of night.

Hoban, Russell

Perfect for kids who love to laugh, a classic tale about the value of fooling around, written and illustrated by two masters of children's literature.

Tom loves to fool around and is very good at it. So he invents a jam-powered frog and takes his Aunt Bundlejoy Cosysweet out on the frog out for a spin. When the no-nonsense Captain Najork sees them hopping past his window, he and his hired sportsmen jump into their pedal-powered snake and set off in hot pursuit.

Events, adventure and sheer craziness conspire to bring Tom and the Captain together at the local girls' boarding school, where Aunt Fidget Wonkham-Strong Najork is in the middle of a best-of-three arm-wrestling contest against the Headmistress...

Sublimely silly, this is a very funny collaboration for children by Russell Hoban and Quentin Blake, a rip-roaring adventure guaranteed to keep the pages turning and the laughs bouncing off the ceiling! This is a brilliant companion volume to How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen, also published by Godine.
