Overview

Katie Crisp has talent, it’s just that the report card hidden in her room doesn’t show it. School’s out for another year and Katie is set to spend the summer lazing under the sausage tree in the backyard of the only home she’s ever known. So, when she discovers that Parfitt’s Family Soft Drink Company is about to be taken over by a corporate giant, leaving her mum out of a job and them both out of a home, it’s time to finally show everyone what she’s made of.

With her nose for trouble and her eye for advertising, and a little help from some neighbourhood friends, Katie declares Mosquito Advertising open for business. Pocket money and creative thinking can stretch a long way when everything that means anything to you is about to be destroyed.

Kate Hunter, author of A Curry for Murray, and the Mosquito Advertising series: The Parfizz Pitch, The Crunch Campaign, and the Blade Brief

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.
