An excellent writer, especially for kids with a sense of humor, with a load of funny short stories that are appropriate, but just enough naughty for kids to think their incredibly funny.
Easy reading for adults to kids (because we like them too) or for reading levels over the age of about 9 years.

"Unbelievable" (first published in 1987) was Australian author Paul Jennings' second collection of short stories for kids, published while he was still working as a teacher. They're quirky, inventive, funny, occasionally gross and fun for all ages really. They really evoke Australia too, particularly the state of Victoria and the city of Melbourne, which I've always liked about Paul's books.

There are nine stories here:

"Pink Bow Tie" is something of a story within a story, involving a machine that can make the user younger or older. I quite like it, and it must be a popular one, because it was not only adapted into an episode of "Round the Twist" but also made into a very special Paul Jennings comic as well.

"One Shot Toothpaste" was a story I always found really creepy when I was a kid. Dentists, experiments with teeth. It's not surprising, really. Great little tale, and another story within a story.

"There's No Such Thing" is an interesting piece about a dragon who lives in the drain.

"Inside Out" has a punk ghost, a horror film lover, a "spook exam" and even a magic trick or two. The ending comes on rather suddenly, but it's a decent story.

"The Busker" is a pretty intense story for a children's book, I've always thought. It's a reflection on money, greed and friendship, and it's pretty sad too. I know it's made one or two people cry reading it. Yet another story within a story, part of which is set on Australia's shipwreck coast.

"Souperman" sees a comic book fan meet his hero living a few apartments away. He's not quite how he is in the comics though. Seems this real life superhero needs soup for souper powers. Silly, but I like it.

"The Gumleaf War" is a very Australian short story.

Unbelieveable is a great book from one Australia's greatest authors. Many days during primary school I could be found with my nose buried in a Paul Jennings book. Like all of his stories these have a suprise ending which children will love and adults will still get a buzz out of.

However of all the stories in this book there are two that I absolutely love - There's No Such Thing and The Busker.

Both of these stories have real heart to them, and while There's No Such Thing gives some laughs The Busker can make you cry.

In There's No Such Thing a boys grandfather is placed into mental hospital because he believes that there are dragons living in the sewer. The nurse is horrid to the grandfather and the boys parents feel sorry for him. The boy decides to go into the sewer to find proof that his grandfather isn't crazy. But if a dragon really does live there will he make it out?

While in The Busker, a boy wants to take a girl to the movies. The only problem is she wants to be taken in a taxi - next best thing to a limo I guess. When Dad says no to the $10 for a taxi the boy runs off and down the beach. As night sets in he finds a man in the sands dunes who tells him a story. He was once a busker with a dog who made it rich. But what is happiness really worth? Be warned, if you have ever lost a very special dog it can bring a tear to the eye.

As with all of Paul Jennings stories there is something for everyone. I highly recommend this and all of the Un- books (Unreal!; Unbelievable!; Quirky Tails! More Oddball Stories; Uncanny!; Unbearable!; Unmentionable!; Undone!; Uncovered!; Unseen!; Tongue Tied!). Guaranteed you will find something to love whether your an adult (with or without kids) or a child.
