About the Author

Andy Griffiths is one of Australia's funniest writers for children. His books have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, have featured on the New York Times bestseller lists, and have won over forty Australian children's choice awards. Andy lives in Melbourne, Australia. Stig Wemyss is an actor, writer and the voice behind millions of children's audiobooks. Well, not millions. Thousands ... alright, more like hundreds ... he has a huge fan club. Bolinda audio is constantly receiving letters from kids saying things like 'Stig rocks' and 'I love Stig' and 'Stig Wemyss is the best narrator in the world'. Of course we don't show Stig all these letters, as he already thinks he's the best narrator in the universe! Stig is also the author of the exciting in-car audio entertainment series, The Tripp Diaries, so now he thinks he's the best narrator and the best author in the universe. We think he is too, but let's just keep that to ourselves.

Reviews

Gr 4-7-Australian author Andy Griffiths has masterfully written this very humorous piece, read by Stig Wemyss. Griffiths, whose story is told in first person, chronicles a series of practical jokes, including episodes that involve fake vomit, dog poo, and bananas, among other things. In one story, Griffith tells of delivering a Gorilla-gram and, while dressed as a gorilla, stopping to observe restaurant goers, mocking them much like people do with gorillas in a zoo. He not only mimics their actions, he "moons" them when he is shooed away, carrying his gorilla antics a bit too far. The police show up, believing that he is a real gorilla, and attempt to subdue him and return him to the zoo. Most of Griffith's antics backfire on him, and the anticipation is appropriately written into the story. The decidedly Australian flair in both the writing and reading of this title adds to the sense of adventure. Music and sound effects are sprinkled throughout. This book will be prankster heaven for upper elementary and middle school students, particularly boys. Just plain fun, it is a worthy addition to audio collections, and may be enough to encourage reluctant readers to check out other titles by the author.-Kirsten Martindale, formerly Menomonie Public Library, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
