Inhaltsangabe: Help save quaggy, wink-a-peeps and snirtle! Carnaby Street lives in Morocco, with her family, plus her aardvark, her devious cat Martin and ten tiny tortoises. One by one, eccentric relatives come to stay. Starting with Great Aunt Amelia, an octogenarian adventurer, who arrives with her elderly pet python. Amelia shins down the drainpipes, cooks a full meal out of various coloured potatoes, gives a lengthy slide show of her travels and engages in a madcap knitting competition with Carnaby's mum. Carnaby and her cousin Carter get the uneasy feeling that Amelia is just the first of many relatives who'll be coming to stay. By blending oddball relatives, zany pictures and a unique mishmash of words, definitions and idioms, Carnaby Street and her Great Uninvited help readers of all ages to discover some of the endangered words of the English language. Through humour and outstanding artwork, the book urges young people to help snatch begrumpled from the brink of obscurity, jazz up jargogle and massage poor sick kedge-belly back to life. Carnaby Street stories are designed to offer an eccentric romp for children as young as five and as old as twelve. The content (both written and visual) is presented in such a way as to offer something for everyone. In addition to the general narrative are a number of hidden definitions. These appear in the artwork, presented in a tiny font. The idea is that the definitions will enhance the general story, but should a child not wish to track them down, the story stands alone. A small magnifying sheet is included in each copy of the book to help in the hunt. A detachable bookmark, offering a hundred fun yet endangered words is also included in each book.
Über den Autor: Safia Shah is a peculiar hodgepodge of Anglo/Afghan/Indian/Scottish ancestry. She spends her time zigzagging between Casablanca, Morocco and Surrey in the UK. In Morocco she lives by the ocean, where she has ducks, cockroaches and tiny tortoises. (She prefers the tortoises to the cockroaches but is trying hard not to have favourites). In Surrey she and her husband are renovating a hundred year-old grain barge called Joja. They drive around in an old London taxi. They are former journalists. They escaped from east London, where they once had a traditional British food shop called A.Gold. Before settling in Morocco, Safia worked with Afghan refugees in Pakistan, almost starved to death in Germany, and spent years pretending to perfect her French in Paris. She comes from a family of writers. She has two young children and her mission is to help breathe new life into endangered words. Her current ambition is to somehow publish bonnyclabber, curmudgeon and the screaming ab-dabs in a single sentence. (That's one ambition down then, just another jillion to go) . . . Mark David Reeve has been a commercial artist for more than twenty years. He was political cartoonist on the Mail On Sunday for three and-a-half years and was awarded the Gillray Cup by The Political Cartoon Society in 2004. He has sculpted and drawn the heads for Spitting Image and has more recently, designed some sixty characters for ITV1 s satirical animated show 'Headcases'.
