Andy Griffiths on his ‘disgusting’ children’s books | 60 Minutes Australia SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/xsXMP6qQv-w : Here’s a terrible statistic: there are one million schoolkids in this country who can’t read properly. As a nation we should be ashamed. But if we’re serious about fixing the problem, maybe we need to pay attention to a former punk-rocking anarchist whose formula for the write stuff is to be very wrong. Children’s author Andy Griffiths is happily – and defiantly – disgusting. In his page-turners, no bodily function is too repulsive: pooing, farting and vomiting rule. It’s guaranteed that kids will be revolted. They’ll probably laugh a lot too. But best of all, without even realising it, they’ll be reading.
