9780140371048: Unmentionable!: More Amazing Stories

Unmentionable? Sure. But I'll try to tell you anyway...The mouth organ is inside my mouth. It is stuck in sideways. The pain is terrible. My eyes water. Some things you just can't talk about. Locked in the loo. Kissing a cold, cold kid. Being a little squirt. Burning your behind. Unmentionable short stories from the brilliant Paul Jennings.

About the Author:

Paul Jennings worked as a special-education teacher before becoming a full-time writer. He has been voted 'favourite author' by children in Australia over forty times and has won every children's choice award in Australia. His books, including Undone!, Unreal! and Tongue-Tied! are hugely popular and he has sold more than 6.7 million books worldwide.

From Kirkus Reviews:

From a popular Australian writer, nine more stories in a follow-up to Uncanny! and Unreal! (both 1991). In ``Birdman,'' a scrofulous magic headpiece forces a bully to plunge his face into dung; Mr. Simpkin is trapped on ``The Velvet Throne'' in a public loo where graffiti comes true; ``Little Squirt'' finally wins a certain contest in the school restroom: ``Sam...blows his top. He hits the roof. But not in the same way that I do.'' Now and then, Jennings gets away from alimentary humor for effects macabre (a teenager compounding disasters when a magic ``Harmonica'' gets stuck in her mouth) and even tender (a clumsy ``Cry Baby'' helps his Grandpop find the elusive Water-Holding Frog). Broad plots, surprise endings, unsubtle humor, and just deserts all `round. (Short Stories. 11-13) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
