Superstar, author and illustrator Rob Biddulph dazzles in Peanut Jones and the Illustrated City, the first title in an adventure series for boys and girls of 8+. This exciting, funny, middle-grade debut is from the bestselling creative genius behind #DrawWithRob and is illustrated in black and white throughout.
Some legends are born, some are drawn . . .
Drawing feels like magic to Peanut Jones. But art can't fix her problems. Her dad has gone missing, and she's stuck in a boring new school. Until the day she finds a unique pencil turbo-charged with special powers. Suddenly she's pulled into a world packed with more colour, creativity, excitement and danger than she could ever have imagined. And maybe, just maybe, she might find out what happened to her dad.

Goodness me, THIS BOOK. Rob Biddulph has only gone & done it again. Committed the ultimate crime of being FAR TOO AWESOME. I mean, look at this utter beauty?! Those illustrations. This book is EPIC -- Laura Ellen Anderson
A wildly imaginative, big-hearted celebration of creativity -- Anna James, bestselling author of the Pages & Co series
A masterful mix of art, heart and edge-of-your-seat adventure. I love Peanut Jones! -- Sibeal Pounder
Fresh and original, it's full of Biddulph's characteristic warmth and, of course, his striking illustrations. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
This is a beautiful book, the images on the page and the magnificent imagery created by the words exist in perfect harmony, each helping the other to tell the story of Peanut's emotions and journey. There is a real joy in this book, one of finding strength and friendships along with the sting of real life and the pain of losing a parent. Like Rob Biddulph says, 'Some legends are born, others are drawn…' and Peanut Jones and her plight are most definitely that of a legend. * ReadingZone *
