Books - Dinkin Dings
Dinkin Dings is afraid of everything – apart from the monsters under his own bed...
Pete’s collaborations with the brilliant Guy Bass follow the reluctant adventures of young Dinkin Dings and his unlikely and even more reluctant accomplices, the Frightening Things.
Dinkin’s debut adventure was published in 2009 and in March 2010 won the Blue Peter Book Award for ‘Most Fun Story with Pictures’*. There are now four Dinkin tales, all of which have received rave reviews from children and adults alike.
*"I really think the Blue Peter Children's Books Award is the children's author's Oscar and I know a lot of my author friends agree." Ali Sparkes, 2010 overall winner.
Dinkin also recently won the ninth annual Portsmouth Book Award. Guy went down to collect the award and also regale the children with tales of Dinkin - and was regaled back with a song and a play. There's a great article about the event here:
Art director: Tom Truong.
