Professor McQuark’s Curiously Creative Cootie Catcher

Feeling in an inventive mood?  I certainly am, because my debut picture book is coming out tomorrow and it’s all about a very inventive professor and her curious creation – the amazing oojamaflip!  Getting a children’s book published has been a lifetime ambition for me so I will be celebrating tomorrow with friends and and I thought I’d make some Professor McQuark cootie catchers for my guests to play with.  Why not download one and help me celebrate?  The illustrations are by the amazing Julia Patton – you can see more of her work on her website at juliapatton.co.ukProfessor McQuark and the Oojamaflip is published by Maverick Books and available to buy from Amazon UK and Amazon US or google to find your nearest stockist.

Lucky Item cootie catcher

M. Haller Yamada designed this Lucky Item cootie catcher to use in an English as a Foreign Language Class for 11 and 12-year-olds in Japan.  He assures me that “Whatever they get, if they use it, it will bring them good luck.  At least in theory…”  Definitely worth a try, I think!

Wedding cootie catcher

Here’s my take on a popular cootie catcher theme – the wedding.  I’m imagining guests whiling away the time between the buffet and the first dance with these, hence the challenges inside!  You can either download a copy to print as it is, or download the Powerpoint version and personalise and edit it to your heart’s content.

Don’t forget you can create your own cootie catchers from scratch by using my blank PowerPoint template.
