Martin McKenna and Misterstourworm

My sometime Fighting Fantasy collaborator Martin McKenna (who has illustrated two of my FF gamebooks to date and produced the covers for all four of the Wizard editions) has recently been working on a project that involves erstwhile hobbit Billy Boyd and a full orchestra!

Martin has illustrated the book that accompanies the CD Misterstourworm and the Kelpieā€™s Gift, a magical, Scottish project by composer Savourna Stevenson and writer Stuart Paterson.

The CD tells the story of a young hero who embarks on a magical quest to free his people from a fearsome and terrible monster, known as Misterstourworm. On his journey he meets various supernatural companions who help him in his quest, but will our hero have the strength and courage to triumph? The tale is narrated by Billy Boyd against a musical backdrop, which brings classical music to life for children.
