KONNIE HUQ – Friday at 1pm


‘Cookie & The Most Annoying Boy in the World’ (Templar £10.99)

Cookie’s life is basically over. Her best friend in the whole world is moving to Solihull because one of her dads has a new job there. Solihull?! Where even is that?! Cookie begs her parents for a pet to fill the void but they have given her an absolute NO. It would be way too expensive and way way too messy. But Cookie has never been a fan of the word ‘no’ so she visits the pet shop anyway and sets her heart on the sweetest cutest kitteniest kitten ever: Bluey. But then . . . DISASTER! The most ANNOYING boy she’s ever met in her entire nine years goes into the pet shop, buys Bluey and renames her Nigel!

As the longest serving female Blue Peter presenter, from 1997 to 2008, Konnie Huq is no stranger to the middle-grade market. She is an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust and the British Asian Trust. This is her first foray into children’s books and Cookie is inspired by Konnie’s own London Bangladeshi background, her love of science and her unashamed nerdiness!


Konnie will be visiting the Kew Bookshop at 1pm on Friday 11th October, so coma along and have a chat.
