‘Mud on your Face’ introduces young readers to Gus, a boy so sick of his brothers and sisters that he wishes he was an only child……or so he thought.
Sometimes Gus feels left out, picked on, or even forgotten by his family. He wonders what life might be like if he had no brothers or sisters, and if he was an only child.
On a family camping trip Gus finds himself lost in the woods, left behind by his family.
A different adventure takes place for Gus with a strange new friend.
Be careful what you wish for….
Mud on your Face is a fantasy, adventure story for children, taking the reader through an adventure of ‘what ifs’. What if you got what you wished for? Would you be happy? There is a morale around being content with what you have, and finding happiness.
Continuing, “With such a vital message, my goal is to get a copy of the book into every home, school and community centre in the country. A lot of new fiction for kids these days seems to be based on epic battles and toilet humour – so it’s time we harked back to the days of traditional storytelling with an adventure that is positive, upbeat and carries a pertinent life lesson.”
