International Children's Book Fair in Bologna

There were more rock legends this week at the International Children's Book Fair in Bologna where Ahmet Zappa, the son of Frank Zappa, was celebrating a three-book deal with Puffin Books for his fantasy adventures for eight-plus, starting with The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless, in August. It's the story of 11-year-old monsterminator Miranda McFearless.

Puffin calls it "Lemony Snicket meets the Addams family" and believes it will "turn non-readers into readers". Disney film to follow.
