BREAKING NEWS Daddy and the World's Longest Poo

On Monday 13 February, the official publicity campaign for Daddy and the World's Longest Poo began in Australia and America, with LAVIDGE PR!

Check out the press release link here, in it's first shout out on The Bookshelf Cafe's twitter feed!

If you see any reviews of the book, let me know (good or bad!) and be sure to follow my "Poo" book launch trail on my Blog page.

And after I finally came off a high from Entertainment Tonight following me on Twitter (!) I turned my thoughts to this week's "poo" book blog.

In it, I explore why parents need to admit that they like reading books to their kids that make them laugh too. And if we are all talking about poo anyway (i.e. parents of toilet-training toddlers and cheeky pre-schoolers), why not embrace it and laugh at it?

About the Author

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.

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.

Brydie also blogs for WeekendNotes and Sydney Mum's Group.

See Brydie's Emerging Author profile at Creative Kids Tales. In March, Brydie is CKT's Emerging Author of the month. See more below.

Latest Review for WeekendNotes

On 18 March, Monkey Baa Theatre Company embarked on an ambitious 59-venue national tour of its new smash hit stage show, Diary of a Wombat. Bringing to life Jackie French and Bruce Whatley's classic picture book, this adaptation is purely for kids ages 3+ and the young at heart.

Brydie's latest review for WeekendNotes shares her experience at the preview performance for Diary of a Wombat and why this play is perfect for a young and traditionally tough crowd.


Latest Review for Sydney Mum's Group

Brydie is proud to have joined the blogging team for Sydney Mum's Group.

Her latest review looks at the changing landscape of day care centres in Sydney. With a proliferation of new centres popping up, parents might finally have more choice but what should we do with that choice?

For newbie parents, anxious about what to look for in a day care centre, this article offers some advice and gives you an example of what your centre should aspire to. 

View Brydie's profile page here, where you can like and subscribe to her blogs, and if you're a Sydney Mum, you might like to join the Facebook group. It's great.

Brydie is sure to be sharing the good, the bad and the ugly about the weird and wonderful things you can get up to with your kids.
