Don't be mislead by the cover: no clues given and do not expect to know the ending. A surprise when you get to the end.
A book for the whole family to discuss again and again. This book is written in English and the vernacular of Australian Slang words. Hollow Log as a series commences with this book. The follow up book, To Kill a Bunyip, relies heavily on this book.

Meet the Author

A.R. Dent was born in 1945 in Sydney and lived at a beach side suburb. After a turbulent/quiet contrasting early life A.R. Dent then spent time travelling before settling down for a business and professional life. 'Been there - done that' about sums up his life. A Professional Artist and now also including his love of writing and poetry into his life. In writing To Kill a Bunyip I had a plan. Write the book more stupid than Ocker Oscar (that was a challenge). I now have another plan; write each book more stupid than the last book. The single goal of A R Dent is to create original stories that entertain. I am not writing books. I am not an author. I am now a storyteller. I have a present 'work-in-progress' to follow after To Kill a Bunyip and experimenting with other stories to find my true 'author's voice' which is there but I need to fine tune it specifically for storytelling. Short stories and Novellas are my aim to entertain through the written word. All books/stories are related to me...... Ocker Oscar and To Kill a Bunyip were written from my experiences in my life. All stories will have a theme or plot that is connected somehow to my life. My intent is to write, using satire, in a way that people see history as a continuum that changes but remains constant. Fiction, facts, and lies. My next book is titled - The Justice of Null. Details of the progress are posted on A R Dent Facebook page. UPDATE....... on 10th May 2015 (Australia time)........ """""""In the writing of Ocker Oscar I aimed for a Pygmalion effect as Oscar improved through pressure put on him. The concept remains throughout the story but I had to remove writing errors I deliberately inserted to create the change. A new version has been uploaded and now available. The new version is easier for grammarians to read. Many people saw the writing improvement but, alas, grammarians had a field day.""""""""
