"READ IN to HELP OUT"

Welcome to the WHACKY world of Martyn Harvey, the NEW children's author who's hoping to knock David Walliams off the Christmas No.1 slot this year!

What's it all about?

Martyn Harvey released his first book "The Boy with the Saucepan Hat" in October 2019 and has been working on two follow-up books this year, as well as creating videos for YouTube, Instagram and Facebook.

"The Boy with the Saucepan Hat" has gone down a STORM with kids, parents and teachers but, when the Covid Lockdown started just after World Book Day in March, sales slumped.

"When we couldn't go into schools and do Author Visits, one of the main sources of income for self-published children's authors dried up - overnight!" says Martyn. "It's easy if you're a celebrity like David Walliams and have a major publisher and a massive marketing budget behind you but - for the rest of us, it's been a pretty tough year!"

Martyn has been helping out the local community by giving away FREE books to families in Eastham, where he now lives and has launched his own "one man campaign" which he's calling "READ IN TO HELP OUT" to kick off sales of his book in the lead up to Christmas.

"OK, it's not as huge as 'Code Name Bananas'..." says Martyn, referring to David Walliams' latest Christmas book, "...but everyone who's bought "The Boy with the Saucepan Hat" so far has loved it, so I'm hoping I can reach out to a whole new generation of readers this year!"

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Martyn has been helping out by donating free books to local families and charities and has now recorded and uploaded a series of entertaining videos and story readings for kids to enjoy!

About the Book

When Oliver Todd wakes up with a Saucepan stuck firmly on his head, he thinks, at first that - surely things can't get any worse... or can they?

The Boy with the Saucepan Hat features a Boy and a Saucepan (obviously), some worried parents, a cute baby sister and a loyal best mate, Alan. This is a story about what happens when the unfortunate Oliver Todd takes his head and the saucepan (which is stuck on that head) to the local Accident and Emergency Department. It's one of Martyn Harvey's latest funny books for kids!
