A Sting in the Tale is a winning collection of ‘Big Al’s best, much-loved yarns with a few new ones thrown in for good measure, all showcasing his classic sense of humour.

Traversing the length and breadth of New Zealand, and illustrated with photographs and cartoons, ‘Big Al’ and his trusty companions entertain us with stories of beasts that got in the way, off-track adventures and, ultimately, good times enjoyed with great mates.
