Find out more about Captain Underpants at Dav Pilkey's extra crunchy (?) web site of fun. dpilkeyTonnes of very silly information, videos and dozens of games to play.

 

 

 

 

johnboyne

 

As serious a web site as the last one was silly, is johnboyne.com. Find out a little bit more about the author and what else he has written, (but remember John Boyne also writes for adults!) 

 

 

 

A really fun (and very 'swish') web site is roalddahl.com. An interview with the now deceased rdahlRoald Dahl and lots of information about his books. Check out the 'Treats' section, particularly the 'Wonkalator'...

 

 

 

anthonyh

 

All the information you ever wanted to know about Anthony Horowitz at anthonyhorowitz.com, lots of message boards with discussion of the books, and the man himself answers some readers' questions.

 

 

 

Enter the crazy world of Philip Ardagh at philipardagh.com and find out more about his pardaghcharacters, such Eddie Dickens. No games, but he does keep his journal up to date and it's normally fairly amusing...

 

 

 

 

jkrowlingThere are a gazillion fan sites, but the official J K Rowling site is jkrowling.com Quite a big site (you can have it in Spanish, Italian, French...) always up to date with news, and JK was particularly good at answering fans questions about various HP threories, a little less fun now that has come to an end though...

 

 

 

Part of the publisher's web site (Egmont.co.uk) is where you'll find the official web site of the astantonrevolting Mr Gum. If you haven't read a Mr Gum book, what's kept you?! Your chance to view 'Bag of Sticks' and play your own game of 'Butchers' Darts'...

 

 

mmorpurgo

 

A much more serious site is Michael Morpurgo's (michaelmorpurgo.org) but for Morpurgo fans it will give you as much information about him as you want, and a long, long list of everything he's ever published.

 

 

Terry Pratchett's site, terrypratchett.co.uk, is being developed, but there's still lots to look at, tptratchettand it looks great. Like John Boyne, though, remember that most of what Terry has written isn't for children, so make sure you find the right series of books!

 

 

 

jmbarrie

 

 

If you're interested in J.M.Barrie and where the idea for Peter Pan came from, then this web site is for you (jmbarrie.co.uk). There's a lot of reading there, and it is very 'adult' in its presentation, but videos of JM Barrie and photographs from the time Peter Pan was published make it very interesting.
