David Warner turns author with book series for children
Australian opening batsman David Warner is known for his belligerence when he has got a bat in his hand, but off the field, it seems like he is trying his best to pass on a thoughtful message to all the youngsters growing up, by writing a children’s book series called “Kaboom Kid”.
The series talks about the adventures of a young boy called Davey and consists of four books. The book’s main focus is on passing messages to the kids growing up against sledging and bullying. If the publishers “Simon & Schuster” are to be believed, the book series is extremely entertaining and lays emphasis on showing cricket as a game that can have a positive influence on all youngsters.
The basic plot revolves around little Davey, who lives with his family and his dog Max at Sandhill Flats and describes him to be crazy about the game, along with his school friends and the dog. The stories have been illustrated by Jules Faber.
The four books are titled, "The Big Switch", "Playing Up", "Keep It Down" and "Hit For Six".
The 28-year-old Warner, in the past, has been involved in several heated incidents off the field, the most notorious one being during the Champions Trophy in England in 2013, where he punched England batsman Joe Root following his side’s loss. However, it seems as if he has turned over a new leaf now and is looking to impart some good wisdom for the next generation courtesy of the books.
