About the Author - Daddy and the World's Longest Poo

Brydie Wright is a first-time Author from Sydney. Four years ago, motherhood turned her life on its head and sparked her imagination. Brydie now finds creativity through writing about the quirks of family life. Through her tongue-in-cheek tales, she writes as much for the parents of little readers as for the little readers themselves.

Finalist in the Independent Author Network Book Awards 2017, Brydie's debut picture book will delight pre-school and early primary readers with its honesty and sense of humour. Mums, Dads and grandparents will get a cheeky laugh out of it too.

There's a story to suit every child's taste and Brydie is excited to share a snippet from Magic Beans, her short story contribution to the collection...


Daddy, can we plant the (magic) beans? I’d love my own beanstalk, reaching high in the sky, with a giant living at the top. He’d be very scary but I am brave, just like Jack. If I climb up and catch the goose that lays the golden eggs, we’ll be rich!

Pre-Orders Available Now:
Sydneysiders, to pre-order a copy from Brydie (and receive before Christmas), you can email her via the Contact Brydie page on this website.  The book cost will be AU$15 (postage not included). I can also post copies interstate, for an additional postage cost.
