Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 9th 2009
MB INNER WEST COURIER, Thursday, July 9, 2009 11 www.innerwestcourier.com.au NEWS Children's author Andy Griffiths meets two of his fans in Leichhardt on Monday. Picture: CRAIG WILSON ~PP294549 Macbeth for kids Kate Carr CHILDREN'S author Andy Griffiths took his own bus to Shearer's Bookshop on Norton St, Leichhardt, on Monday, as part of a national tour to promote his latest book Just Macbeth. Surrounded by fans, including some from Summer Hill Public School, Griffiths said the book came about after he was asked by the Bell Shakespeare Company to write a play which could introduce younger audi- ences to Shakespeare. ''I think they were surprised when I said I'd do Shakespeare's bloodiest, most terrify- ing play,'' he said. ''The challenge was almost irresistible.'' Following the success of the play, the script was turned into a book. A winner of more than 40 Australian children's choice award for his books which include the best-selling Just series, Mr Griffiths said he'd had to tone down some of the play's violence to avoid scaring young readers. ''The violence is cartoony violence,'' he said. ''Rather than murdering everyone, MacDuff kills their kittens, puppies and ponies.'' He said he also retold the story through the perspectives of Just trio Andy, Danny and Lisa, who come to inhabit the charac- ters in the classic play. ''I get to realise every crazy silly idea I've ever had, from fart jokes right through. ''Meeting children with their eyes shin- ing who have been turned onto reading through the book is great,'' he said.
