Curly Tales

Short Stories with a Twist

Illustrated by Dave Atze

Let your imagination soar with these funny fables about the extraordinary adventures of ordinary animals. Laugh out loud and enjoy twisted tales of a super smart cow, a daredevil flea, an earthworm who daydreams of being an anaconda, and many more. Warning: Readers may not be able to stop smiling.

Bill Condon was born in the back of a taxi. Sadly, his mother didn’t have enough money to pay the fare so the driver kept him, but only until he was 30, when his mum finally remembered him. Since then Bill has written more than 100 books for children and young adults. On four occasions his books have been shortlisted for the Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Awards, and in 2010 he won the Prime Minister’s Literary Award. But despite all that, he remains very, very silly.
