Gotcha Books was born out of the desire to help Andrew’s youngest son pick up a book and read. So getting kids reading (especially reluctant readers) is at the very heart of Gotcha Books and Mashed Myths.
WE DONATE - HELPING KIDS EVERYWHERE READ
We believe it's every person's right to be able to read.
It is well documented that one of the best ways out of poverty and disadvantage is through education.
To help achieve this 10% of the profit from the sale of every Mashed Myths book goes to various literacy charities.
This year it’s the wonderful organisation Book Aid International, who make sure children across Africa get books. So when you buy one of the Mashed Myths series you’ll not only be helping your child be a better reader you’ll also be helping some of the most disadvantaged children on the planet to learn how to read.
For teachers you can Download our curriculum guide for educators and readers here. These notes feature discussion points, activities and writing prompts so you can use MASHED MYTHS in the classroom to teach your class about Mythology, Ancient History, Storytelling and much more.
BOOK A SCHOOL VISIT
If you'd like Mick (lives in LA) or Andrew (lives in Sydney) to come to your school and talk about writing, myths, MASHED MYTHS, drawing and anything in between, then head over to our CONTACT page and drop us a line.
Mick and Andrew write a BLOG about a subject close to our hearts, that is getting kids reading through laughs and the power of reading. Hope it's of some use and you enjoy it.
