Guest author blog: Matt Brown on his book, ‘Compton Valance’


I’m stupidly excited to introduce you to the ridiculously revolting world of Compton Valance, The Most Powerful Boy in the Universe!


Matt Brown

This is the first in a series all about Compton Valance and his best friend Bryan Nylon, who discover the world’s first time machine (aka a mouldy, thirteen-week-old cheese-and-pickled-egg sandwich). If you love time-travel, stinkiness, adventure, disgusting burps, custard trousers, secret agents from the future, dinosaur disasters and dads who wear dresses, and want to know how many farts you can fit in a tent, then you need to get this book.

You know when people ask what superpower you’d like to have? Well, my answer has always been the power to travel through time. Which is why I simply had to write about a boy who accidentally creates a time machine. Ever since I was in school, time travel adventure stories were my favourites. I loved Doctor Who and would dream of what I would do if I had a T.A.R.D.I.S. I went to see Back To The Future about six hundred times and wanted to be Marty McFly more than I’ve ever wanted anything. My copies of Tom’s Midnight Garden and Stig Of The Dump fell apart from re-reading and re-reading and re-reading.

So writing Compton was the next best thing to actually living my childhood dreams. Plus, being able to read a story that I’ve created to my own two sons and have them snorting juice out of their noses with laughter is A-MAY-ZING.

If you want to find out how Compton and Bryan manage to wipe out the dinosaurs with a packet of custard creams, please read my book. Although before you begin, I must warn you, the dinosaur thing is only the start of it – time travel can get really, really weird!

I love Compton Valance and Bryan Nylon with all my heart and I hope you will too.
