30 lucky winners will receive a copy of H is for Happiness by Barry Jonsberg valued at $16.99 each!

Film tie-in edition of My Life as an Alphabet which is now the major Australian film, H is for Happiness. A delightful story of an unusual girl who goes to great lengths to bring love and laughter into the lives of everyone she cares about.

‘Where do I start in explaining how much I loved this hilariously quirky and moving story with its beautiful, fractured gem of a narrator? How about A is for Awesome.’ – Michael Gerard Bauer

This isn’t just about me. It’s also about the other people in my life – my mother, my father, my dead sister Sky, my penpal Denille, Rich Uncle Brian, Earth-Pig Fish and Douglas Benson From Another Dimension. These are people [with the exception of Earth-Pig Fish, who is a fish] who have shaped me, made me what I am. I cannot recount my life without recounting elements of theirs. This is a big task, but I am confident I am up to it.

Introducing Candice Phee: twelve years old, hilariously honest and a little … odd. But she has a big heart, the very best of intentions and an unwavering determination to ensure everyone is happy. So she sets about trying to ‘fix’ all the problems of all the people [and pets] in her life.

Laugh-out-loud funny and wonderfully touching, H is for Happiness is the film based on Barry Jonsberg’s award-winning novel My Life as an Alphabet.

  • Matilda just loved that film, because she could make things fly

  • I loved “The Goonies” because it was full of mystery and adventure for a group of children who have a weird and wonderful time in this 80’s movie.

  • Favourite movie was Toothless that reminded me of the tooth fairy,
    When as a little tracker, loosing a tooth was honorary,
    Learning from mum and dad that the hole was temporary,
    When rewards for lost teeth was purely monetary.

  • We didn’t watch much tv as kids, too busy outside. A cinema film I remember seeing was The Apple Dumpling Gang, that was pretty funny, and probably my only childhood cinema visit

  • Secret garden, but not really because of the story but imagining wondering the stunning gardens that looked magical

  • wizard of oz because we all have something inside

  • Home Alone without a doubt. Every Christmas it was a must watch.

  • pippi longstocking as I felt she was very positive and upbeat despite having a hard life. She was always happy and friendly even when others were rude or didnt agree with her

  • big with tom hanks. I wanted to grow up.

  • I loved the Fox & the Hound. Loved the animals – their character, friendship and story. Made me laugh and cry

  • I would LOVE to win this for my 9yr old girl, she can do with some love & laughter and goodness in her life.

  • The Labyrinth; I was a bit of a weird kid and literally watched this movie every week. Particularly loved “Dance Magic Dance” song because “slap that baby, make him free” but I thought it was “make him pee”.
    Like I said. I was a weird kid.

  • Beaches – I went with my best friend and her mum and we all cried together but we absolutely loved the singing and the story.

  • I cried, loved and talked about The Yearling every Christmas as a child.When the little boy jumps off the roof to the father killing the Deer my heart ached.

  • I love Lady and the Tramp. I always cheered when they ate the spaghetti!
