Inspired by his passion for sport and desire to get reluctant readers engaged in books, Michael Panckridge put his mind to the job of creating a series of engaging, fast-paced sporty books. Books for kids who, let’s be honest, would probably rather be out there playing the game, than reading about it! That was Michael as a boy.

Growing up, all Michael needed at hand was a bat or ball (depending on the season!) but as the son of an author, librarian and English teacher and thus living in a household filled with books, it wasn’t long before he was caught up in a world of stories.

These stories are now some of Australia’s most popular children’s books.
