So Wrong

How can something so wrong be so right!?

From the diabolically dangerous duo of author Michael Wagner and artist Wayne Bryant comes a naughty and subversive collection of twisted tales, odd ads, questionable life lessons and other forms of laugh-out-loud wrongness. But beware¦

This book is rude, it has attitude, it’ll make your brain skewed, and someone should get sued, because sometimes IT’S TOTALLY NUDE!

So Wrong 2


Wrong again

Michael Wagner and Wayne Bryant are back and it seems they’ve learned nothing from their previous mistakes. With a fresh cast of INAPPROPRIATE characters, including:
• Nan the Forgetful Nudist
• Warren the One-legged Wonder Dog
• Steve McSpleen
• and Tomas the Tank
what chance did So Wrong 2 ever have of being sensible, reasonable or even tolerable?


And it’s lived up to all expectations. So open this book now and let the outrage begin.

So Wrong 3

Following the success of the first two So Wrong titles (So Wrong 2 was shortlisted for the 2019 YABBA, KROC and KOALA Awards), Michael Wagner and Wayne Bryant are proud to announce the arrival of So Wrong 3.

And this installment takes wrongness to whole new heights/depths. This time around, prepare to meet:

• Betsy the Butt-Slapping Baby
• a human spleen with a sensitive heart
• a terrible stench with no clear origin
• a smattering of bullies, sumos and ninjas
• and a bored little boy who accidentally starts World War III

So Wrong 3 provided another fresh, energetic, good-natured blend of slightly subversive silliness that’s loved by kids, parents, teachers and librarians alike.

If you’re after a gaggle of giggles, a hive of hilarity or a flock of fun, So Wrong is the series for you.

What the critics are saying

‘Kids who like subversive humour will grab this book with glee. Perfect for reluctant readers 10+ or anyone who wants a riotous read.’ – The Book Chook blog

‘…fantastically hilarious satirical advertisements … lavishly illustrated with a huge variety of visual jokes as well … Highly recommended for all readers who snort out loud laughing.’ – Sue Warren, Teacher-Librarian.

‘This is one of the funniest books for kids I have read in a long time. It changes the format, making it like a TV show in a book. Can’t wait for the sequel!’ – Adam Wallace, New York Times bestselling children’s author

So much gold in one book … the verdict is in, this one is sure to please even the most reluctant readers from ages 5 to one hundred. 5 Stars.‘ – Julie Grasso, reviewer and Goodreads author

‘… non-stop entertainment value … I think my favourite parts of this book were the highly suspect life advice from supposed Life Coach for Kids, Mitey Mikey, and the hilarious advertisements for useful products like The Parental Attitude Adjuster.’ – Dee White, reviewer, author, blogger

A laugh-out-loud package that will appeal to middle primary readers and and could provide a hook to catch reluctant readers. Mikey’s illiterate advice is a bit confronting from a teacher’s perspective however these passages provide hilarious fodder for reviewing some basic spelling and grammar rules.’ – Jennie Bales, Adjunct Lecturer, Master of Education (Teacher Librarianship)
