YOUR STORY: Without Andy Griffith's books I'd go nuts

ANDY Griffiths is an amazing author.

His books are phenomenal. They are super funny and meeting him was better than anything I've done before. Without his books I think I would go nuts.

We just went on holidays and we listened to Zombie Bums from Uranus on audiobook while we were driving.

My mum has never read Andy Griffiths before so it was funny to make her listen to it.

When I met Andy Griffiths I told him about this and he asked if my mum was coming to complain about it.

She told him that she actually liked it. It was way funny because he said that he'd tried to listen to the audiobook but couldn't.

He said it was "hard-core work", this is why Andy Griffiths is the best author ever.
