Newsflash: Armadillos love Monkey Nuts and the DFC Library!

Although it has not yet been confirmed that EVERY armoured placental mammal on planet Earth has read the first brave tale of Sid and Rivet, we have just had official confirmation that one Armadillo in particular has been thrilled by the DFC series. And that critter is the namesake for a superb Children's book review website.

Fancy a couple of tasters from contributor, Liz Bankes?

"Monkey Nuts is just that – nuts! It is a chaotic, humour-packed caper of craziness."

"While the story hurtles along at a million miles an hour, you can also pore over each of the pages for hours as there are so many details and gags to find.

She's right, you know!

Dave Shelton, Sarah McIntyre, Neill Cameron, Kate Brown, myself and head honcho, David Fickling have all been interviewed for the feature that discusses the history of the DFC, from initial comic to hardback bound collection.

What's more, all six fantastic debut tittles are reviewed in the article, which you can read in full HERE.

If you're still looking for that perfect chrimbo gift for nephew, niece, son, daughter, brother, sister, mother, father, grandparent, friend, enemy or complete stranger, look no further. The DFC has something for everyone! Even Armadillos!
