If you’re a kid with an interest in zombie bums, not-very-merry merry-go-rounds, ninja snail training academies, gorillagrams or exploding butterflies, you already know who Andy Griffiths is. And if you don’t, here’s your chance to find out.
Probably the most popular – and certainly the silliest – children’s author in Australia, Andy is best known for the Just series, the Treehouse books, the Bum series … and for causing you to convulse with laughter.
