About the Author:

Since the publication of Unreal! in 1985, readers all around the world have devoured Paul Jennings' stories. He has been voted 'favourite author' by Australian children over forty times and has won every children's choice award in Australia. In 1995 Paul was made a Member of the Order of Australia for services to children's literature, and in 2001 he was awarded the Dromkeen Medal for services to children's literature. In 2007, Paul Jennings' worldwide sales surpassed 8 million copies.

From AudioFile:

Jennings creates a real mix of very short to moderately long stories that range from creepy to funny to downright odd. The endings vary as much as the stories themselves, with narrator Steven Pacey giving each his best treatment. We move back in time to a dragon and then become more modern with a silly and embarrassing use of a lie detector. Craziest of all is the surprise video control that enables a boy to pause, fast forward, and reverse people's actions. He makes good use of this against a bully and during an important race. All ages will enjoy laughs and scares with Jennings's 13. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
