Working on a Middle Grade Book: Friends Against Bullies

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

I spend just over half my working week on Arctic Circle. The rest of the time is spent working for other clients (like for CSIRO in Australia, doing a comic for their science magazine for kids, which you can see here on my website). This year, I’ve been carving out some time for a middle grade book, The FAB (Friends Against Bullies) Club.

Friends Against Bullies rough cover

The book is for kids between about 8 and 12 years old, which was about the age I was when I was bullied at school (When I was 13, we moved and I met my own geeky crowd). FAB Club is the book I would have liked to have read back then and I hope it encourages and inspires kids who are in a similar situation now.

The final draft of the book is written and I recently finished the rough illustrations.


If you want to keep up with the progress of FAB Club (and even get involved – I will be crowd-sourcing editors and reviewers), you can see more posts about it on my other blog, alexhallatt.wordpress.com.
