Ep 6: You Are Number Six!

Prepare the mulled wine and mince pies and hold onto your sleighs! - it's the epic Episode 6 of Double Booked Podcast, a magical Christmas episode of our children's book podcast where everything is possible thanks to the imaginations of co-hosts, best-selling authors Ho-Ho-Ho-Eoin Colfer and Andrew ''St. Nick" Donkin. 


In this bumper edition of the podcast, our dynamic duo delve into an underrated children's classic 'The Mouse and His Child' by Russell Hoban in Me, Myshelf and I, and discover the secret contents of an unwrapped present that lay unloved for 50 years in Weird Science. In a very special meeting of minds, multi-award winning illustrator PJ Lynch invites Eoin and Andrew into his awesome world of art, which has adorned best-selling titles across the globe including his new release 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' by Clement Clarke Moore. 


In 'It was Rubbish, But I Loved It' , Christmas presents that did not end up being all they appeared to be is a hot topic of discussion and if that's not enough - get ready for the final writing problem of the year to be solved by Agony Eoin.


In this final festive episode of the season, Eoin and Andrew are also joined throughout the show by our special guests from Season 1 of Double Booked - Jonathan Stroud, Jenny Valentine, Cressida Cowell, M.G Leonard and PJ Lynch. Five brilliant children’s authors offering their own personal choices for Christmas Book Gifting and telling us what’s special about the stories they’ve chosen. Book yourself a Merry Christmas by joining them now.
