Hungry? Need Lunch? Mum's packed you curried banana and pickle sandwiches again? Only got a $1.25 to your name? Then you need to see Matt, because Matt has an amazing talent ...Some kids are good at footy, or handball, or tennis. Not Matt, though.Matt is an expert at Tuckshop.($1.25 = sausage roll and small choc milk, by the way ...)In the dog-eat-pie world of the playground, when your best friend is the lunch lady, and hunger can be just around the corner, someone like Matt can go a long way.But of course, being the best at anything does have its problems.Even tuckshop.
Pat Flynn grew up running around an old dairy farm in Queensland, before moving to Canberra to attend the Australian Institute of Sport on a tennis scholarship. After playing and coaching on the professional circuit he became a teacher, where his observations of young people - their interests and stories - led to him writing about them. Pat Flynn now writes books for a living, in a house near the beach on the Sunshine Coast. He likes to start the day off with a surf and end it walking along the beach with his wife. His books include Get Rich Quick, Don't Kiss Girls, How to Get Dumped, Aussie Chomp- The Mal Rider, The Best Ballgirl and Tom in the Stuff Happens series.
