Who is Andy Griffiths?

Andy Griffiths is Australia’s most popular children’s writer. He is the author of over 20 books, including nonsense verse, short stories, comic novels and plays. Over the past 15 years Andy’s books have been New York Times bestsellers, won over 50 children’s choice awards, been adapted as a television cartoon series and sold over 5 million copies worldwide.

Andy is best known as the author of the much-loved Just!series and The Day My Bum Went Psycho. In 2008 Andy became the first Australian author to win six children’s choice awards in one year for Just Shocking!, smashing his previous record of 4 awards for The Bad Book in 2005.

Andy has had a long-standing collaboration with the multi-talented illustrator Terry Denton. Together they have produced the Just! series, the wildly popular The Bad Book, and its follow-up, The Very Bad Book, two ridiculous illustrated guidesWhat Bumosaur is That? and What Body Part is That? as well as the Seussian-inspired early readers' The Cat on the Mat is Flat and The Big Fat Cow that Goes Kapow! Their latest collaboration is The 13-Storey Treehouse which was voted ABIA's 2012 Book of the Year for Older Readers, and September 2012 sees the hugely anticipated The 26-Storey Treehouse. Meanwhile Andy and Terry are also working on a collection of inspirational writing exercises called Once Upon a Slime: 52 fun ways to get writing ... fast! for English teachers and emerging writers and illustrators to be published in April 2013.

In 2008 Andy and his wife Jill collaborated with The Bell Shakespeare Company on the popular and critically acclaimed theatrical production Just Macbeth! which was nominated for two Helpmann Awards. In July 2010 Just Macbeth! completed a return sold-out season at the Sydney Opera House before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it received rave reviews. The book of the play was shortlisted in the children’s section of the 2010 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards.
