New Book Announcement – Dennis the Menace and Gnasher: The Golden Catapult

Here’s some news I’ve been waiting to share. I’ve written a new Dennis the Menace and Gnasher book for Puffin Books.

The Golden Catapult is a bit different. It’s part novel, part comic, part puzzle, and stars loads of Beanotown favourites including Dennis, Minnie the Minx, Roger the Dodger, Calamity James and the Bash Street Kids.

Here’s the cover by Nigel Parkinson, who’s also providing the interior illos:


And here’s the blurb:


When Dennis, Gnasher and the rest of the infamous Menace Squad find out about a rare and legendary artefact, they set off on an amazing adventure to track it down. Only the most menacey Menace will get to it first!

Read the story and complete the puzzles to find out who will reach . . . THE GOLDEN CATAPULT!

The Golden Catapult is out 1st October. More on it soon!



  1. With my nephew (in Hastings) being a rather massive Beano fan I shall pass on the news of the book 😀
