Check out our November Star Author – Des Hunt

We have a Star Author joining us on the Christchurch Kids blog each month during the school year.  Our Star Author will blog about their books, give writing tips, answer your questions and talk about things that interest them.

Each month we will also have a Star Author competition.  You will have to post an answer to a question about the Star Author on the blog and you’ll go into the draw to win a copy of one of their books.

Our Star Author for November is New Zealand author Des Hunt.  He is the author of some great adventure stories set in New Zealand, including Frog Whistle Mine, The Tooth, The Secret of Jelly Mountain and Cry of the Taniwha.  His stories are set in places that you can visit and recognise, and he likes to highlight the unique wildlife and geology of New Zealand.  Des has just released his first non fiction book for kids called The Naughty Kids Book of Nature, showing you the grossest, nastiest bits of nature in New Zealand.
