Welcome to Snort! This site is a hub for funny children's book fans.
Readers, writers, illustrators, librarians, bookshops, bloggers - that means
YOU! We are learning how to do this as we go along but will be
accumulating expertise and content to build a great source for funny book
news, reviews, interviews, and much, much more. Please feel free to get
involved. But first, why not pull up a biscuit and take a moment to acquaint yourself with us on the about page. Or read a review, or take a squizz at our features. Get yourself settled in and enjoy. We hope you become a regular visitor!
Rejoice! Blow the fanfare! Let choirs of angels sing, for Snort
has a new Queen: the magificently hilarious Elaine Wickson.
To commemorate the release of her new book, Super Stan,
Elaine has graciously ascended the Snort Throne for a week of
celebration. Coming up over the length of Her Glorious Reign we
have interviews, Her Majesty's Five Favourite Funny Books, a
fabulous competition, Queen Elaine's Life in Pictures and - of
course - reviews of all her books, including the Hot-Off-The-Presses
On this, the final day of our Queen's reign
we have the review you've all been waiting for.
Head over to find out what SUPER STAN has
in store. SPOILER: It's a majestic triumph!
Or take a look at Queen Elaine's top picks with Five Favourite Funnies or dive into our
reviews of Planet Stan and Action Stan. And don't forget to enter our faaaaabulous competition. Features also has an interview with our Glorious Monarch.
Win! Win! Win! Win! Win! Win! Win!
Queen Elaine is a generous monarch and is giving her faithful subjects the chance to win not
one but ALL THREE of her books, signed by her own royal hand.
All YOU have to do is ask her a question, on any topic you like. Email your query to or tweet @elainewickson (making sure to paste in either @RachelDelahaye or @MJHowardWrites). On Friday, Queen Elaine will pick her favourite question.
