Nit Boy

 By Tristan Bancks; Illustrated by Heath McKenzie

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll itch.

Kids itching for a good read? Try NitLit – a totally new and unique genre in Australian publishing conceived by gun Australian author Tristan Bancks.

Nit Boy is the hilarious story of two ‘blood-brothers’ (Ned, a reluctant head louse and his nit-loving human companion, Lewis). These two fast and funny books are recommended for 8-12 year olds – the punchy text and Heath McKenzie’s supportive illustrations will hold the attention of even the most reluctant reader.

With 23% of Australian school children having head lice at any one time, nits are a topic that most parents can relate to. Nit Boy won’t get rid of the lice, but it’ll help the family laugh about them – guaranteed!

“These bugged-up books are packed with gags and nit facts that’ll leave you scratchin’ ya brain! Must read!” K-Zone

“Lift Off, the first book in the Nit Boy series is loads of fun. Educational even. And guaranteed to reassure any kid with nits that there is nothing to be embarrassed about. I’m starting the Nit Boy fan club.” Author Sandy Fussell, Stories are Light
