After the laugh out loud success of Tim’s earlier book, Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bogey?, Tim proudly presents the latest instalment of that pesky green fiend’s adventures: You Can’t Stop The Big Bad Bogey, with hilariously disgusting illustrations once again by the brilliant Tom Knight. Making a mockery of some more of the world’s favourite fairy tales, You Can’t Stop The Big Bad Bogey is the runaway comedy hit of the autumn, and the pick of any child’s bedtime reading. He might get up your nose, but remember: don’t blame it on the sunshine, don’t blame it on the moonlight, don’t blame it on the good times… Blame it on the Bogey!
Telling “the true story of the big bad wolf”, Growl is Tim's latest collaboration with lyricist and composer Laurence Mark Wythe, with whom he previously wrote MIDNIGHT and DANNY HERO. After the hugely successful 2019 National Youth Music Theatre tour (Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds; Curve Studio Leicester; Rose Theatre Kingston), the production moves to China in 2020.
