About Adam Wallace
I have over 80 books published and out in the world, and love each one as if it were my child ... except if that child is like really naughty and always breaks my favourite things and writes bad words on the walls of our house.
None of my books are like that.
From How to Catch books to How to Draw books. From gross books to action and adventure books. From inspirational to just plain funny, there's something here for kids of all reading abilities, and all ranges of interests.
Check them out, and always feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would love to connect and hear your thoughts, on my books, writing, or anything else you feel like chatting about!
I personally answer each and every email ... I have to. My assistant is really slack.

Beautifully illustrated by the amazing Heath McKenzie and hilariously written by Adam Wallace (author of Mac O'Beasty, The Negatees, The Incredible Journey of Pete McGee and the upcoming Pete McGee 2 - Day of the Zombie Knights...), this fun filled story has an inbuild moral for children, which is, the story encourages kids about the joys of sharing and not being greedy.
Mac O’Beasty was a huge Scottish monster who dreamed of travelling the land, playing his bagpipes. Every time he played, all the other monsters danced and danced and danced. How they loved to hear him! Mac sadly wished he could dance to music but he was too big and fat. He had never ran, or climbed a tree even. Mac loved eating sugary food and fatty, yukky junk-food and it was making him so fat, he could hardly move.
One day, a little monster called Julie, who was a personal trainer, told Mac that she needed to help him to lose some fat or he would die young from eating all the sugary and fatty junk-food, she told him his heart would just stop if he kept on eating all the junk!
Julie helped Mac to walk, run, exercise, and in six months Mac lost heaps of weight and he just loved the change to his life. He also could dance now…his feet just began to move one day when he was playing his bagpipes…and he danced, and danced, and it felt so good.
Mac learned how much more fun he could have by being healthy, so he joined Julie, the personal trainer, and they helped other monsters to be healthy and happy.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Once upon a time there was a boy called Adam,
Who liked writing books, to be sure.
He wrote his first ever children’s book in 1999,
And then wrote a whole heap more.
Now he’s written about a million different books,
Although it might be a little bit less.
But it’s a lot, I tell you that right now,
Maybe 999,999 … at a guess.
Adam Wallace loves writing books,
But doesn’t like eating his words.
He likes smelling musk lifesavers,
But doesn’t like smelling dog … messes.
He loves taking siestas and afternoon naps,
But there are two things that freak him out.
When the moon and sun are both up together,
And fax machines, of course. What are they about?
But all that aside, here are the facts,
The things you need to know.
He’s 39 years old, 178cm tall,
And has a 6cm big toe.
