Synopsis

Recommended for ages 7+.

Rich and Matt are off to the toilet for a Number 2 . . . a second Teleportaloo adventure, that is!

This latest book from two of Australia’s favourite comedy performers is 100% crazy and out-of-this-world fun. Filled with hilarious illustrations and featuring The Listies, Matt and Rich, as they appear in their shows and performances, this is another masterpiece of silly science fiction, toot-a-riffic toilet humour and slapstick.

THE EVIL NANASIS has gone REALLY bananas this time and WANTS HER STUFF BACK or the world is doomed (again). Worst of all, she's holding Nan's beloved pet ferret hostage! This time the POO-NAMI is really going to hit the wind farm!

Against all the odds, it's up to the Listies to save the day . . . Next stop in the interdimensional plumbing of time and space is THE MAUL, a sinister shopping centre that's surprisingly difficult to leave. Let's hope they don't SHOP TILL THEY DROP!

About the author

The Listies

Richard Higgins and Matt Kelly are a comedy double act who make kids LOL. When they are not on tour with their live shows (or travelling interdimensionally) they live in Melbourne, Australia. They met doing student theatre at uni way back in the olden days. They enjoyed performing together so much that they decided to start making their own comedy shows. First they did crazy shows for adults, then they switched to making crazy shows for kids. Their first kids show was called ‘More Fun Than a Wii!’ Lots of people liked it, hardly anyone spewed. They took it to Edinburgh and had a great time. Since then they have made eight more shows, which they tour all over the place, they have recorded three albums, a podcast and two TV shows – The Listies Work for Peanuts and Art Blast (which are both on ABC iView). Their first book, Ickypedia, is an encyclopedia of words that don’t exist but should. Their second book, Ickyfoodia, is a gross and totally hilarious ‘encyclopedia of food’.
