Trixie Pickle Art Avenger: Toxic Takedown

by Olaf Falafel

A laugh-out-loud illustrated adventure featuring Trixie Pickle, the Banksy of her school.

A weird sickness bug has been spreading through Wormwood Town and everyone is wondering if there’s something in the water. Trixie Pickle Art Avenger uses the power of art to investigate – can she get to the bottom of the mystery around the town reservoir?

She’s got a lot on her plate – being bored to sleep by Money Week at school, making comics with her best friend Beeks and finding a way to bring down the local mean girls – but with artistic inspiration from Botticelli, Damien Hirst and Kehinde Wiley, the Art Avenger is sure to win the day.

Highly illustrated throughout by Olaf and with fact files of hilarious and irreverent details about real artists such as Yayoi Kusama and Hokusai, Trixie Pickle is perfect for fans of Konnie Huq, Sam Copeland and Liz Pichon.

“The series is a super accessible introduction to art history for kids (and grown ups!)… Packed with humour and action, lots of Falafel’s brilliantly funny and quirky illustrations, and the fascinating art history element (including irreverent details about real artists such as Yayoi Kusama and Hokusai) children will be laughing and (learning!) from start to finish!” - Lancashire Post
“A brilliant way to learn about art, while following the hilarious twists and turns of Trixie’s wacky adventures.” - The Week Junior
