Norman's Super-library

Barry, Norman, Keith, Bernard and Doug are united in a brand new collection! This boxed set includes six of Norman’s top library picks, including: Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell, Keith the Cat with the Magic Hat, Barry the Fish with Fingers, Barry the Fish with Fingers and the Hairy Scary Monster, No-Bot the Robot with No Bottom and Doug the Bug that went Boing.

With this perfect collection, you can play hide and seek with Barry, find Norman’s perfect shell or help Bernard retrieve his lost bottom! So why not venture into this wonderful world of reading and illustration, created by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet?

Sue Hendra grew up in Wimbledon and has always loved making up stories and drawing pictures. Her favourite book as a child was Mr. Silly. She graduated from Brighton University in 1994 and has been creating picture books ever since. In 2006 she met Paul Linnet and could instantly see that she'd met a fellow nitwit who liked talking nonsense. They went on to create many bestselling books together, working in a small room in their house in Brighton. Sue loves swimming, and can swim up and down for a very long time. Her favourite book is still Mr. Silly.

Paul Linnet was born in Brighton and grew up in the Midlands, reading Tintin and playing classic 80s video games, before becoming obsessed with scribbling, writing, guitars and motorcycles. He studied Graphic Design at Derby University, and later moved back to Brighton where he met Sue Hendra. They made up a story about a fish with fingers and then a slug with a doughnut for a shell, and now no one can stop them from writing more and more frankly ridiculous books. They live in Brighton – and Paul still loves scribbling, writing, guitars and motorcycles.
