The blurb

How can something so wrong by so right!?

From the diabolically dangerous duo of author Michael Wagner and artist Wayne Bryant comes a naughty and subversive collection of twisted tales, odd ads, questionable life lessons and other forms of laugh-out-loud wrongness. But beware…

This book is rude, it has attitude, it’ll make your brain skewed, and someone should get sued, because sometimes IT’S TOTALLY NUDE!

What the critics are saying

“This is one of the funniest books for kids I have read in a long time. It changes the format, making it like a TV show in a book. This is perfect for reluctant readers, and just readers who love a laugh. Can’t wait for the sequel!” — Adam Wallace, New York Times best-selling children’s author

“… outrageously subversive humorous writing that fools kids into thinking they are not seriously reading … fantastically hilarious satirical advertisements … And of course the pages are lavishly illustrated with a huge variety of visual jokes as well …  Highly recommended for all readers who snort out loud laughing.” — Sue Warren, Teacher-Librarian.

“My Absolute favourite is the PAA. Parental Attitude Adjuster … the one that had me laughing out loud was Mikey’s version of a certain incredibly famous book, which will forever now be known as the Very Hungry Caterpooper. So much gold in one book … the verdict is in, this one is sure to please even the most reluctant readers from ages 5 to one hundred. 5 Stars.” — Julie Grasso, reviewer and Goodreads author

“… apart from its non-stop entertainment value … it offers achievable reading goals for kids who are reluctant to pick up a book. They can read a few pages at a time and still complete a story or segment. I think my favourite parts of this book were the highly suspect ‘life advice’ from supposed Life Coach for Kids, Mitey Mikey, and the hilarious advertisements for useful products like The Parental Attitude Adjuster.” — Dee White, reviewer, author, blogger

“… a laugh-out-loud package that will appeal to middle primary readers and could provide a ‘hook’ to catch reluctant readers … hilarious fodder for reviewing some basic spelling and grammar rules…” — Jennie Bales, Adjunct Lecturer, Master of Education (Teacher Librarianship)
