Writing children’s books came as a bit of a shock for Brett Avison.
“People tell me it’s very difficult to write for children. I didn’t start until I was 60 and it never crossed my mind before that I would write anything for anyone,” says Brett, who lives in Havelock
Invited to the amazing Margaret Mahy’s 70th birthday, the idea of writing for children germinated and now 6 years later, he has 4 books to his credit.

  1. This book has great thick pages making it harder to tear than you average book. The illustrations on each page are nice and bright keeping my 5yr old son interested. It is an enjoyable book to read as it rhymes and has some humour in it. There is one page near the end with a pop up on it which always goes down a treat in this household. The story is great as involved having to excavate a blocked pipe from the ground with a crane (which is a field of work my son is a very avid fan of) so the ducks would have somewhere to swim(teaches compassion for animals). All in all a really great book children will enjoy. Thanks so much for picking me to review it!
