About the Author

Barry Hutchison was born and raised in the Highlands of Scotland. He was just eight years old when he decided he wanted to become a writer and 17 when he sold his first piece of work. His work includes the Invisible Fiends series for HarperCollins and The Shark-Headed Bear Thing for Nosy Crow. He also writes for TV. Barry lives in Fort William with his partner and their two children.

Katie Abey provides illustrative doses of happiness, motivation, sarcasm and general randomness. Her work usually features puns and crazy animals. She lives in Derbyshire.

This was a great book for my 8 and 6 year olds! They loved it!
My 8 year old liked it because she though it was funny and made her laugh! (She loves those types.)
My 6 year old liked because of how it was written. She thought it was great discriptive writing.
Go Beaky Malone!

I was super excited when I first heard about this book. It sounded hilarious and the cover instantly drew my eye. Even though it’s targeted at a much younger audience, I found this book to be a riot from start to finish. Poor Beaky just doesn’t catch a break!

Beaky Malone is the best at lying. It just comes naturally to him. So when his sister drags him into a mysterious shop after a family trip goes horribly wrong and dares him to enter the ‘truth-telling’ machine, Beaky doesn’t expect anything to happen. Only it does, and now he can’t lie! Struggling to get his sister and best friend to believe him, while figuring out a way to get his lying ability back, Beaky causes more and more chaos with each word that comes out of his mouth.

This story was one of those books that I wish had been around when I was a young reader. I used to spend all my time as a kid in the library, reading stacks upon stacks of books, and I know that I would have loved this book just as much then as I did now as a twenty-six year old. I wish that it was longer, because reading it as an adult meant I flew through it far too quickly!

Beaky’s relationship with his family is strained due to his constant lies and when his ability to lie disappears altogether, it pushes his family over the edge. Causing nothing but grief for his Aunt and Uncle, who are staying with them for a few days, Beaky struggles to convince his sister that he isn’t just telling another lie and that he can’t actually say anything that isn’t true.

The classic ‘boy who cried wolf’ story definitely springs to mind with this one. Poor Beaky had told so many lies that no one would believe him now and his desperate attempts to fix things only succeeds in making things worse.
