Book Review: Do Not Open This Book

children kids uncle author

And the Uncle of the Year Award goes to… Andy Lee! You see, not only is Andy one half of the comedy duo Hamish & Andy, but he’s also a seriously awesome uncle and seriously successful kids’ book author.

Which bring us to his Mum’s Grapevine Uncle of the Year Award (haha), because as well as being a TV and radio superstar, Andy also has a little nephew called George. And to celebrate George’s first birthday, Andy thought he might just write a book for his sister’s baby.

He called it Do Not Open This Book and envisaged a one-book wonder that would surprise his sis’ and give George a giggle over the years. Except that Andy’s single-copy book got picked up by a publisher, sold tens of thousands of copies in a few days and – yep – ticked off the whole ‘surprise my sister’ thing:

And now we all get to enjoy Do Not Open This Book, which is the story of a guy who will do anything for you to not open this book, including threats, bribes and reverse psychology. Your tyke will have a spring in their fingers and a twinkle in their eye as they do everything the critter tells them not to do.

Do not miss this brilliant book! Available online from Booktopia in hard cover.
