About the Author

Paul Jennings is Australia's master of madness. TONGUE-TIED! is his tenth book of short stories. He is also the creator of the much loved SINGENPOO & GIZMO books. He is concerned to make reading fun and interesting for children, instead of a chore. He lectures in Teacher and Adult Education. Paul has won many Australian awards - in 1992 he won an award in every children's choice list in the country.


Gr 4-8-Paul Jennings has what can only be described as a unique style of writing. The far stretches of his imagination are examined in this audio version of another of his bizarre story collections (Penguin, 2002). Clearly aimed at an audience of adolescent boys, this collection has a bit of everything-two fart stories, a French-kissing (or is it fish-kissing?) episode, and glow-in-the-dark teeth. This is a wonderful collection, but it will surely step on some sensitive toes. Don't let that stop you from enjoying it, however. The stories are imaginative, often humorous, compelling, occasionally poignant, and never boring. Hailstone bugs, Mom's hat and its connection to feral rats, and the question of whether ghosts realize they had a "before-life" are all examined. Stig Wemyss reads these very Australian stories with the perfect accent, creating voices for each character but, more importantly, giving the author's words expressive performance. This audio production is sure to keep the intended audience riveted.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

A strange and intriguing new collection from this great teller of fantastic tales. Paul Jennings is Australia's master of madness, and Tongue-Tied is his tenth book of short stories.
