Here's some snaps of one of the A2 monsters I sent out this morning...!

Good day to you all ... and today, especially, all you parents!

So, parents, what do you say to winning a set of Freaky & Fearless books and a year's subscription to The Beano for your children/yourself?  Hmm?  What do you say?

Correct answer, big guy!  Well, the wonderful folks over at (one of the UK's most popular parenting sites) have put together a simply awesome competition that gives you the chance to do just that.
Entering could not be simpler.  All you have to do is head over HERE and tell Mumsnet what your child's favourite comic is by posting on the discussion thread below the article.

THAT'S IT!  You could be looking at 52 free comics and 2 free books (absolutely wonderful books ... ahem).

What are you waiting for?  You've got to be in it to win it.  The competition closes on 5th October.  GOOD LUCK!

IT'S FREAKY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations.  You made it.

You survived till Thursday without going POP from excitement which means you did better than US!!!

Freaky & Fearless 2: The Art of Being a Freak has arrived.  Now we can start the party!
You want to know what it's all about???  Okay, here's the official word on the street:

"Simon Moss and Whippet Willow are heading off to the woods for an Explorers' Camp weekend.  They'd rather be at home reading comics, but it should take their minds off the super-weird events of two weeks ago.  They haven't seen Lucy Shufflebottom since their destruction of the Snotticus monster, and Mossy's superpower hasn't worked since then either, so maybe it's time to move on. Lake Shore must be monster-free by now!  Anyway, with caveman-like Ted Recks (AKA "T-Rex") as camp leader, the boys will be more than safe this weekend ... right? 


Luckily for Simon and Whippet genuine help is closer than they think, and their combined talent for Telling and Drawing stories is about to become very handy indeed. 

With out-of-this-world artwork by Jan Bielecki, FREAKY & FEARLESS is a fun-filled series like no other!"

Oooooooooh ... sounds good!  Now, let's take a look at some of that artwork, shall we?
THAT is the good stuff!

If you're aged between 7 and 70 and are a fan of action, adventure, oodles of comedy and bucketful's of spooky stuff, then this is the book series for YOU!

Younger readers be warned: this book contains a lot of awesomeness. Maybe ... maybe too much.

GRAB YOUR COPY TODAY! The Freaky & Fearless books are available from all good book shops (if they don't have it in stock ask them to order it ... then ask them WHY it's not in stock!!!) OR you can order it online HERE!

Have a Fearless day, and we'll be back with more Freaky news soon.

One ... Day ... To ... Go!

You might think you're ready.

THESE folks thought they were ready.

But how can you truly prepare ... for a brand new Etherington Book???
For what it's worth, you've got 24 hours to prepare.  Tomorrow is Freaky day.

Get your pennies ready and your "GIMME MY FREAKY FUN" face ready.  Choose your bookseller of choice OR place your order HERE.

Then sit back and relax.  Because you cannot stop what's coming.

Freaky & Fearless: The Art of Being a Freak is on its way.

Madness.  Danger.  And a whole lot of fun!!  We cannot wait to share the adventure.

Freaky & Fearless 2 Coming SUPER soon!

Nothing like a little bonus mid-week surprise to keep the blood pumping, is there?
Well ...

It's true, folks! The second volume in the Freaky trilogy - Freaky & Fearless: The Art of Being a Freak - will be dropping this Thursday!

If you can't wait for the shops, you can order your copy online NOW ... right HERE!

* Actual blown minds NOT guaranteed ... after all, if we actually blew your mind, how would you be able to read Book 3???
