About the Author
Rod Clement is a renowned author, illustrator and cartoonist. He has written and illustrated Grandad’s Teeth, Just Another Ordinary Day, Olga The Brolga, Feathers For Phoebe and Top Dog, and illustrated Edward The Emu And Edwina The Emu both written by Sheena Knowles. Rod is also the cartoonist for several Australian newspapers and lives in Sydney, Australia.
Tongue so firmly in cheek that it may take a surgical procedure to get it out, an Australian cartoonist puts wild spins on the events of young Amanda's "typical" day, as she rises to her alarm (a shiftless genie whaling on a gong), catches a ride to school with an elderly (in fact, a dinosaur) neighbor, listens to the tentacled, three-eyed new girl tell stories of her home "in a land far far away," and, later that evening, cuddles up with a book and her huge "cat," a lion named Fluffy. The text's casual, poker-faced tone contrasts deliciously with the array of monsters in cleverly skewed surroundings, all rendered with loving attention to detail. Inspired silliness.
