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.
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 is a super fan of gothic novels, especially when they are based in 19th Century England, on rugged moorlands. Anyone else relate?
There is a recent spate of psycho-gothic period dramas coming to the cinema from My Cousin Rachel to The Beguiling and now the intriguiging Lady Macbeth, based on a Russian novel from the 1800s.
It's the most extreme period drama Brydie has seen and she writes about her mixed feelings in her review of Lady Macbeth for WeekendNotes.
Latest Review for Sydney Mum's Group
From pools last week, to shopping centres this week, good public amenities are important to mums and dads with young families. Sydney Mums Group is publishing a 'shopping centres in Sydney' series and Brydie nominated Warriewood Square as her pick for the Northern Beaches.
It's a suburban shopping centre that's mid-size and easily accessible, a rareity in the day and age of congested shopping mega 'cities', popping up everywhere.
Take a look inside Warriewood Square, with Brydie's tour of its best features.
