Knit Your Own Compton Valance!

When Compton Valance and his best friend Bryan Nylon discover the world’s first TIME MACHINE (aka a mouldy, thirteen-week-old-cheese-and-pickled-egg sandwich), they become the most powerful boys in the universe.
Now the Manchester Children’s Book Festival have teamed up with the wonderful Ally Lee to show you how to knit your very own Compton Valance.

Follow the ‘Easy-Knit Compton Valance’ guide to create your own time-traveling, sandwich-eating companion. Be sure to have plenty of mould-free sandwiches on hand!
Send us a picture! We would love to see your knitted Compton Valance! You can get in touch by tweeting @MCBFestival or send us an email to We will then publish your pictures on the MCBF Reading and Writing Relay.
