What an epic adventure!

I hope you've all been enjoying my great weekly adventure! I have to say it feels rather special being in the Beano every week as opposed to every now and then. Next week is the last episode, so be sure to email the Beano ed and tell him how much you love me, or vote for me on their online poll. Or both!

Lenny kicked me up the bum the other day and said I've been an idiot and neglected this lovely blog. I can't help it if I've been jet-setting around the world! Opening sweetshops! It's a tough life. Bert worm says he'd be more than happy to write instead of me when I'm away, so I'm thinking about it...

Can worm's type??

In other news:
Fans of all things Derek the Sheep can read a great interview with Gary Northfield in this month's brilliant children's magazine Aquila! Aquila is a subscription only magazine for children, but this month's issue is available to download if you send in your email. Many thanks to Sue Wilkes (AKA Fat Tony) for conducting an amazingly groovy interview and to the Aquila team for allowing such an ugly mug to grace their pages!

A Lovely Poem

Well I hope you're all enjoying my brilliant weekly adventure! Episode 3 is a real cliffhanger ain't it? Sorry I've been away from my site, but blogging ain't so easy to keep up when you start getting as world famous as me!!

I had this brilliant poem from Fat Tony after episode one, who is finding it all terribly exciting -

Poor Derek Sheep fell in the loo
Now he's going to the zoo!
Will he end up in a cage
With a tiger in a rage?
Or will he be
A hippo's pet?
This tale could be
The best one yet!

Cheers FT. Last time I looked FT had turned into a budgie which is quite a laugh! So keep checking out his mad blog.
I've been getting a fair bit of fan art on my messageboard recently, so I'll be posting them all this week (along with another piece).

And thanks to all you loyal Derek fans who have been voting for me on the Official Beanotown readers poll - I'm second only to Dennis himself!!
