I haven’t even opened the first page and already I love these. I love the series title. Nit Boy. The mind boggles and the imagination goes flying after it. I love the Heath MacKenzie drawings. The blurb has suckered me in. Totally. The publicist gets a gold star for coining the phrase Nit Lit.

But most of all I love the way my 8-year-old son’s eyes lit up as he spirited them away to his room saying “I’m reviewing these.” He knows the drill. Reviewers get to keep the boks they review. And he desperately wants these. I’m Nit Boy’s newest fan.

Now to open the page… having been allowed to borrow back the first one… guess what… it’s as good as the package promised. I’m starting the Nit Boy fanclub. Post a comment to sign up here!

  1. Yet another set of books I now have to add to my ever growing “To read” list. Sign me up…

    Thanks Sandy.

    You are right though, the cover illustrations are quirky and appallingly appealing. Definitely a BOYS book.

  3. Hi Sandy

    Thanks so much for blogging my Nitboy books! Let me know if you need help with the fan club.

    I’ve been surfing around and reading the rest of your blog, too. It’s a rich resource. Lots of good book recommendations. I’ve just finished Markus Zusak’s ‘Fighting Ruben Wolfe’ and Nick Hornby’s ‘Slam’. Both worth a read.

    Keep up the good work and I’ll let you know when the ‘Nitboy’ animated trailer is complete. Working on it with a great Melbourne-based animator at the moment.
