Oliver loves to make people laugh, whether it's on the page as a children's author or on stage as a stand up comedian. He uses his experience as a primary school teacher to teach creative writing workshops across Australia. He's also a massive Nintendo nerd and burger head, taking burgergrams all around the world. His books include Thai-riffic!, Con-nerd, Punchlines, The Other Christy and Super Con-nerd. His new book, Natural Born Loser will be out in August.

I'm Raymond, and my school is a joke. It's full of bullies and troublemakers.

My solution? Be a nobody and fade into the background.

But our new principal has blown my cover because he's chosen me as a prefect!

It was looking pretty bad, until I made a crazy promise to get new air con for the classrooms.

Now I'm REALLY in trouble!

Other Bits & Pieces

After the show, Kate gave a good old-fashioned Enid Blyton midnight feast a try. If you’d like to give this a go yourself, here’s what you’ll need: sardines, gingerbread, tinned milk, pineapple chunks and pork pie. Kate says it’s yum but you might like to reserve judgement.
