Norman really wants a new shell. But an ice cream with multicoloured sprinkles makes his back a bit chilly, and someone already lives inside this shiny red apple! Will Norman ever find the new shell he's been dreaming of? A boldly illustrated and tactile way for little ones to discover shapes, colours and sounds, from the creators of hit picture book Barry the Fish with Fingers and the bestselling Supertato series.
Sue Hendra studied illustration at university and also sold doughnuts from a kiosk at the zoo. The illustration career won and she has now illustrated around 100 books. When she met Paul Linnet she found another twit with a silly sense of humour so they fell in love and started writing and illustrating together and came up with bestsellers such as Barry the Fish with Fingers, Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell, Nobot the Robot with No Bottom, Supertato and most recently I Need a Wee. It seems that others enjoy their frankly ridiculous stories and they have won prizes and all sorts. Some nice people even had the great idea to make the book Wanda and the Alien by Sue into a world-wide TV phenomenon! Sue and Paul live in an untidy and half decorated house in the seaside town of Brighton. They have a daughter called Wanda who is perfect in every way possible. Sue is pretty good at swimming and Paul likes to ride around on an old motorbike that he's fussed about with.
