Mosquito Advertising: The Parfizz Pitch

Kate Hunter

An exciting new middle-reader adventure - a modern neighbourhood gang with all the charm of the Famous Five. Katie Crisp has talent, it’s just that the report card hidden in her room doesn’t show it. School’s out for another year and Katie is set to spend the summer lazing under the sausage tree in the backyard of the only home she’s ever known. So, when she discovers that Parfitt’s Family Soft Drink Company is about to be taken over by a corporate giant, leaving her mum out of a job and them both out of a home, it’s time to finally show everyone what she’s made of. With her nose for trouble and her eye for advertising, and a little help from some neighbourhood friends, Katie declares Mosquito Advertising open for business. Pocket money and creative thinking can stretch a long way when everything that means anything to you is about to be destroyed.

Review

Mosquito Advertising is a highly engaging book full of everything a teenager could want: a massive decaying house, a great range of characters, wonderfully sleazy businessmen and friends every one would want. It’s about a 14-year-old Brisbane girl whose mum is about to lose her job and house, whose friends are all growing up and whose report card will most likely make her Mum faint - and not in a good way! So she does what any self-respecting teenager would do - she tries to save her mum’s job and house by enlisting the help of her friends and “crazy” aunt.

Now, this isn’t normally the type of book I’d read because I LOVE reading fantasy. But if you’re like me, and only read one or two non-fantasy books a year, make sure you read Mosquito Advertising. It’s one of the best non-fantasy books I’ve read in a very (VERY) long time. It was so good in fact that I give it 8½ out of 10!
