Phil Kettle is a local author, born in Mildura, he grew up on a farm in Cardross. He is known around the world for his love of writing books for children and visiting schools to talk about reading and writing.
The first series of books Phil wrote was the TOOCOOL series. There were 8 books in Series 1, and another 8 books in Series 2, and then another 8 books in Series 3. He continued to write 10 more books for Series 4. That makes 34 TOOCOOL books!
MARCY is another series of 10 books – and there are more on the way. Phil has lots of feedback about these books from children, and it seems like they all know that MARCY is in charge, and that TOOCOOL is a legend in his own right.
Phil has published 36 BOYZ RULE books and 24 GIRLZ ROCK books, 8 BILLY KOOL books and the TOOCOOL and MARCY Jarvis Walker Kids Fishing books. Plus 20 GET REAL books recently, and the tummy laughing read of Harry and Jesse and their wonderful time machine.
There is also the OUR AUSTRALIA series for Australian Geographic, 8 books were launched in 2010, and more in 2011 and 2012.
He also has a weekly 10 minute show on Hot FM every Sunday morning at 8am called Clancy of the Outback.
Phil has come in with his 8 new books to add to his series of Clancy of the outback.
