Sam Curry and Elle Stevenson who appeared in this year’s show originally worked as a team for one of the show’s tasks to create a children’s book. The team lost the task, but the book about a dragon/elephant hybrid creature called Snottydink sold out in bookshops. Curry and Stevenson have since spent time writing a new book.
Called Gobble Gruff, the story is about an over-sized beast who lives in a magical winter forest.
Curry said so many people had come up to him, asking where they could buy a copy of Snottydink and that the How to Train Your Dragon author Cressida Cowell had been in touch with him privately, praising the book that he decided that writing children’s literature was a viable project.
Gobble Gruff will be released on Amazon on Wednesday 16 December.
