Have you ever seen a Bumbum bee, or an Elelamp? Does your pet wear Doggles? These are all Eggcorns, where a child’s mispronunciation can add a whole other level of meaning! What would a bumbum bee (bumblebee) or Elelamp (elephant) look like? Or Doggles (goggles) or a Carcodile (crocodile)?

Illustrator Chris Judge (The Lonely Beast, Danger is Everywhere) has brought his bizarre sense of humour to imagine them for us all.

Chris Judge is an award winning author and illustrator from Dublin. His picture books include The Lonely Beast series, The Great Explorer and TiN. He is the author of Brian and the Vikings and Brian and the Giant. Chris illustrated Roddy Doyle’s children’s book Brilliant and collaborated with comedian David O’Doherty on the smash hit, Danger is Everywhere! 

Picturebook creator Chris Judge tackles ‘eggcorns’, those entertaining jumbles of words produced when children mispronounce words or phrases they have heard. From ‘buttonup squash’ to ‘earplane’ Chris’s light-touch illustrations present these misused words in a format designed to make children laugh out loud and think about where these words and phrases come from. This title will give hours of family fun and will inspire many young readers to illustrate their own eggcorns!
