Andy Griffiths is Australia's top-selling children's author. He has written some of the country's most loved children's books, including Just Crazy, the Day My Bum Went Psycho, the Schooling Around series and the Bad Book.
The Podkids had been reading some of Andy's books, so we contacted him to see whether he would be willing to take part in an interview. Andy kindly obliged, taking part in a telephone interview from his home state of Victoria.
Many thanks to Andy for sharing his time with our class and for the joy that his books bring to millions of children worldwide.
