Editorial Reviews

A wonderful collection of nine quirky short stories from the acclaimed Australian author Paul Jennings. Although there are the usual fantastic creatures, stray body parts, and strange objects, some of these stories also feature older characters grappling with difficult themes, including autism, bed-wetting, and mental illness. Performer Stig Wemyss is an energetic narrator adept at adopting the plaintive voices of kids and the grumpy or harried tones of their parents. A great listen for older children who enjoy the oddball and offbeat.

Publisher's Summary

Stare if you dare, into Paul Jennings' wild world. How will you stop a thousand rabbits breeding in your bedroom?

Who would want to collect toilet rolls? Could you do it? Fifty dollars if you don't speak for a day. Why would an ear grow on the wall?

Nine stories that you would never dream of. From one of Australia's most popular authors.
