Here s another collection of Andrew Daddo s hilarious short stories that sold straight through their first print run for Christmas 2001, and generated a fantastic publicity campaign. Anyone who has seen Andrew on television knows that he is a born storyteller. And the stories in Sprung Again! are the kind that parents and grandparents long for, and the kids themselves love: stories of adventure, comedy and mischief from an almost legendary Australia, a place that is often not reported in the daily news. But what immediately strikes readers is that these stories are real . They re about football, fishing, camping, holidays, school gangs, growing up and dealing with the whole messy business of boyfriends and girlfriends, being part of the group or a nerd, so they will be eagerly read by both boys and girls. The stories are pacy and cheeky enough to appeal to the kids who love Andy Griffiths, but their resolution often involves little ethical issues that give them a strong appeal to adults. So Sprung Again! will be an ideal Christmas gift, and will have young readers and adults alike laughing with embarrassment at an author who s caught them out when they weren t looking. Terry Denton is one of the secrets behind the success of Andy Griffiths Just series, and his illustrations put another mischievous twist in Andrew Daddo s adventures.
Andrew Daddo is a presenter on American "MTV", "Lonely Planet", "11AM" and "Kidspeak", and he is also the author of "Sprung!" amd "Writing in Wet Cement", in the "Hotshots" series.
