Summary Drawing on a wide range of interviews with Paul Jennings, his family, friends and workmates, the author charts Jenning's sometimes unhappy childhood, his battles with depression, his first attempts at storytelling and his rise to success. With Jenning's success came involvement in the complex worlds of publishing, television and film-making. This biography takes the reader behind the scenes and reveals the negotiations and politics that led to the creation of some of Australia's bet-selling books and most popular television series
