Ep 4: Four-teen Hours to Save the Earth

Welcome back for Episode 4 of Double Booked Podcast, a magical children's book podcast where everything is possible thanks to the imaginations of co-hosts, best-selling authors Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin. 


This month's episode sees the pair uncovering a clever caveman in children's classic 'Stig of the Dump’, taming dragons with internationally renowned author and UK Children's Laureate Cressida Cowell, taking a peek at some nosey aliens in 'Weird Science', and speaking of space, they crank up the volume, hold up their portable stereos and blast forth their love of 1980’s film 'Flash Gordon', warts and all. And if that's not enough - get ready for more of your writing problems solved by 'Agony Eoin'.


Dive with them into the world of children's books and storytelling to learn about the world of children's literature, inspiring books, weird science, writing tips and conversations with other authors about their works, writing and plenty more. This is a podcast for anyone who loves children's books, graphic novels, comics, books, libraries, librarians, bookshops, second-hand bookshops and second-hand librarians.
