Hot off the press is My Totally Awesome Story - a new book from talented duo Pat Flynn and Peter Carnavas. The book follows a 13-year-old Duane as he reluctantly fills his school writing journal with stories about his life - including crashing his motorbike, playing pranks with his best mate Meatball, and chasing the affections of Jackie. Duane illustrates his writing with over 100 funny drawings, and the teacher, Miss Wright, comments on and corrects Duane's work, something he doesn't always appreciate!

Pat's inspiration came from the many writing workshops he's facilitated at schools. 'Young people often write with a lack of self-consciousness that is both endearing and amusing,' Pat says, 'I wanted to capture that natural humour in the novel and also create a book that teachers can use to help students enjoy their writing'.
