Would you like to win $279 and a pile of signed books? Would you like to star in the next Exploding Endings book trailer?

If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions, then this is the competition for you!

This competition requires a video entry/audition. Simply memorise five excuses from ‘The Top 79’ in either of the first two Exploding Endings books, make a video of yourself saying the excuses, and send the video in. Easy!

Helpful tips:

  • select a variety of excuses in terms of difficulty (you’ll be required to learn lines for the official book trailer)
  • introduce yourself and explain why you think you’ll be great for the lead role
  • use a range of different facial expressions
  • be expressive and clear with your voice
  • show a bit of attitude – you’re proving your innocence! No teacher can blame you with these excuses
  • try to keep the video to less than 1 min 30 seconds
  • have fun

To enter the competition you must:

  • have permission from your parents or guardian (they’ll need to post your audition to my Facebook Page, or email it in)
  • be human (sorry, no cats or marshmallows allowed)
  • be aged 8-12 years
  • live in Sydney or be able to film in Sydney in early August


Video entries can be uploaded to my Facebook Page or emailed to [email protected]

The closing date for entries is July 31, 2016.

Have fun and I look forward to seeing your entries soon!

    I love Mr Harris’s books. He is such an inspiration to kids and adults all over the world. He is a great teacher and he knows how to make you smile and laugh. I think the creativity of his books is what makes them such good reads and they always have a little side of quirky to them. I have learnt lots from him and i think he is an amazing guy.

    Mr Harris’s books are what you call “one of a kind”. My brother was reading the book last night and then my mum came in and for the first time ever she had to say “William, stop reading!”. That just shows you how amazing these books are.
