Author(s): Val Bird

Children's Fiction

7.45am Saturday 1st of December: My mother tells me that at three minutes to four o'clock this afternoon; I will have lived in this world for exactly eleven years. "Oh, my goodness, you were such a cute baby," she sighs, then reaches out a hand and ruffles my hair, "I wonder what went wrong." Ozzie did not choose his time of arrival on this earth, but unfortunately turned out to be the first-born male child of his generation. The original Oswald Devon Kingsford was his great-great-great-great grandfather. He was a famous explorer. During the course of his exploits, he kept a journal. After sailing in ships, trekking across deserts, climbing great mountains, and discovering lost tribes - he dropped down dead deep in the Amazon jungle, but not until he wrote this final entry in his journal: 'I beg thee. Do not let my name die with me - my last request is that the first born male child of each generation shall carry my name into the future.' Guaranteed to have both children and adults chuckling, . Illustrated by the author's daughter Rebecca Cundy - a highly successful graphic artist - with very cute line illustrations. First published March 2008.
