Author(s): Andrew Daddo
4 boys, 4 stories, 4 great Australian writers in an important new series. Stuff happens sometimes. Everyday stuff. At school, at home, with sport, with mates. For Ned it happened with a new teacher. For Sean it happened starting at a new school. For Michael it happened when he thought he was disappointing his parents.
Andrew Daddo had a starring role on 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!' in 2015, but his first real TV job was as host of the ABC's national music show The Factory, which gave him cult status amongst Australian teenagers. After a year in New York as the first Australian to graduate to MTV 'VJ', he returned to become a household name with programs like The World's Greatest Commercials, Australia's Funniest People and comfortably adapted to news program 11AM. He's presented the Olympics with Seven in Sydney and Beijing, enjoyed the good life of a professional traveller with The Great Outdoors, appeared in three films and one stage show. Andrew's done a lot! Andrew Daddo is also an accomplished author of 25 best-selling books for all ages - picture books, chapter books, short story collections, young adult novels and adult non-fiction. He writes each month for Australian Golf Digest and contributes regularly to Essential Kids, Sydney Morning Herald and various travel magazines. Over the past ten years he has spoken to literally hundreds of thousands of school children around Australia about the importance of literacy. One Step is Andrew's second book with Penguin Random House after publishing Ned in 2014 as part of the popular Stuff Happens series.
