HarperCollins is absolutely delighted to welcome Colin McNaughton to our hardback original list with a hilarious new title.

Whatever you do be careful not to step on the crack in the pavement, because somewhere in a particular town on a particular street there is a particular crack that could bring you bad luck!

You could turn into a pig, or your baby brother might grow fangs. Your mum might decide to go for a younger look or worse still you might forget to put your trousers on before you go to school!

So all things considered the best advice has to be: DON’T STEP ON THE CRACK!

AGE 3-7

The story goes that there is a town somewhere and in that town, a street.

On that street is a pavement, and on that pavement, a crack.

Whatever you do... DON'T STEP ON THE CRACK!

Colin McNaughton, in typical exuberant style, tackles one of childhood's familiar lores by suggesting what actually might happen if you break the rules: Will you suddenly turn into a pig? Or run into THOSE boys? Or your baby brother could suddenly grow fangs...

Bold illustration and even bolder text make this a funny and, in a way, strangely comforting book for adults and children to enjoy together. (Age 3 and over) --Susan Harrison


Reviews for the Preston series:

‘For sheer fun and verve, Colin McNaughton is unbeatable.’
Radio Times

‘Colin McNaughton combines graphic finesse with comic book slapstick... Children will love the mad jokes.’
