Overview

Mosquito Advertising is home from New York when the shocking news breaks: the government is banning advertising for soft drinks. All the work they’ve done to save Parfizz has been for nothing!

Katie is furious. Bans don’t work, everyone knows that, and while the other soft drink companies weasel their way around the new rules, Mosquito Advertising plots to re-write them.

Katie reckons the key is to make ads for fruit as cool as ads for fizzy drinks. It’s a great idea – all they have to do is convince the Prime Minister. But great ideas aren’t always enough, especially when you’re also dealing with paying clients, a missing kid, moody friends, shadowy enemies and a family set to triple in size.

In this new adventure, the world's first kid-run advertising agency discovers that sometimes the most important thing to sell isn't a thing, it's an idea.

Kate Hunter

Kate Hunter is a writer of all sorts of things: books, ads, articles and ‘to-do’ lists that rarely get done. Her favourite things are conversation, food, friends and family, preferably enjoyed all at once. Originally keen on journalism, her inclination to embellish the truth got in the way of a credible journalistic career. After twenty years as a copywriter, Kate still writes ads but prefers writing novels. In 2010, Kate published her first middle reader novel Mosquito Advertising: The Parfizz Pitch, followed closely by Mosquito Advertising: The Blade Brief (2011) and Mosquito Advertising: The Crunch Campaign (2012). A Curry for Murray is her first picture book. She lives in Brisbane with her husband, their three kids, a dog, and – after rain – more than a few mosquitoes. One day she would like to live in New York City or on a remote tropical island.
