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.

You can now buy signed copies of the anthology, with postage anywhere in Australia, online at the Just Write For Kids Online Shop!

And, if you are local to Harry Hartog Warringah Mall or Bookface Port Macquarie, you can buy copies of the book for $15 and forget postage costs. Pick up a copy of Daddy and the World's Longest Poo while you are in either store, too!


The Creative Kids Tales Story Collection is here! 51 contributions from 40 emerging authors and illustrators. A 287-page illustrated collection of children's fiction (for 8 - 12 yrs) in short story and poetic formats. 

There's a story to suit every child's taste, including Brydie's Magic Beans, beautifully illustrated by Allison Howard.


Joining Little Gnome, Brisbane and BookFace Port Macquarie, as independent stockists of Daddy and the World's Longest Poo, is Sydney bookshop extraordinaire, Harry Hartog at Warringah Mall. Thank you so much to the team, Abby and Mel, for having faith in a local, self-published author and giving my book a go. It will only stay on the shelves if it sells though, so if you're a local, or visiting the mall, enjoy the 'Harry Hartog experience' and pick up a copy of my book!
