There have already been some very impressive entries, so if you want to win you're going to need to pull something pretty amazing out of the hat at the last minute.
Follow this link to my original post about the competition if you want to remind yourself of the competition rules.
Good luck! It's not long now...

So, if you'd like to find out more about the book just before it's published, then pick up a copy of the Sunday Express in 10 days' time.

In due course edits, corrections and additions will inevitably need to be made, but for the time being I can actually get to bed before midnight for once and drift off to sleep knowing that I've got to the end of another book - my nineteenth, to be precise - and that it's a job well done.
And what's more, I'm off to Italy on holiday on Friday, which will be the first time I've been abroad in five years. The timing really couldn't be better.
So, until next time...

At the end of this post you will find a podcast of a conversation I had with Andrew Furlow of Icon Books, which was all about Match Wits.
So what are you waiting for? Click the play button below and all (or at least a lot more) will be revealed.
Match Wits with the Kids is published by Icon Books this June.

Match Wits is a first for me for a number of reasons. It is the first educational book I've written, and it's also the first book of mine to have an index! And today it has produced another first; it is the first book I've written that has led to me recording a podcast!
Andrew Furlow of Icon Books conducted the interview/recording today, and will be paring down my garbled gabbling to hopefully something approximating an intelligible discourse on why you should buy this book!
I'll let you know more when the podcast has been edited and is available for download. Until then...

And very pleased I am with it too! It's the first book I've written that actually has an index - four pages of it, to be precise - everything's in there from acids, via the Byzantine Empire and polygons, to zygote.
