UNITED KINGDOM – Enchanting readers of all ages, Simon Crack’s Splats elevate colourful paint splodges into lovable and intriguing ‘monsters’, all with their own story to share.

The unexpected result of the author’s art and design foundation course submission twenty years ago, this distinctive compendium introduces seventeen characters that not only give the Mr Men series a run for their money, but showcases what can be achieved by looking beyond what first confronts us, and encourages readers to unleash the potential of their imaginations.

A family favourite in the making, this first Splatopia volume also includes space for youngsters to pick up a paintbrush and start splat making.  Also keen to embrace the pleasure his characters bring; the good news is the author is already busy developing plans to expand his bewitching series.

A funny kids monster book for adults also! A collection of crazy creatures with truly bizarre features! The Splat creatures were each created totally randomly! Coloured inks were organically dripped on paper and then illustrated into weird and wonderful creatures when the ink dried. A funny story has been added to each character in the book!

There are 126 Splat characters in total from Splatopia and this book we explore 17 of them. They each have their own weird and wonderful story. Like Fuzz, the smallest creature alive, it just looks bigger due to all its fluff! You can even create your own Splat characters at the end of the book.

The book is intended to get kids creative with their art and give adults a chuckle too. The book indirectly teaches kids that anything can be art and that it doesn’t need to be perfect.

Simon Crack said “Perhaps this is me rebelling against my fine art classes – where everything had to be so precise and painted / drawn exactly how it’s seen without any imagination.”
