My Worst Book Ever! – Alan Ahlberg & Bruce Ingman
This title from Allan Ahlberg has illustrations by Bruce Ingman, with whom Ahlberg has collaborated on many of his books since the death of his wife Janet in 1994. My Worst Book Ever is children’s meta fiction, a book about the process of writing a book.
It tells the story of Ahlberg writing a book called Crocodile Snap!, the process of him getting the opening lines of the story, speaking to Bruce about the illustrations, the manuscript being eaten by snails while Ahlberg is on holiday, meetings with the publisher and then finally problems at the printing press.
