Synopsis A Tad More Grass is another hilarious collection of lawn bowls yarns, anecdotes, poems, stories, cartoons and quips from Neville Odell and follows the great success of his first book Bowl 'em Over published in 2004. To give you a flavour of its wide-ranging humorous content, here's a short selection of the 34 chapter headings:
  • Dumping, Bumping and Grumping - If you need some new excuses
  • A Selector's Lot is Not a Happy One - Elected, selected, rejected and ejected
  • Bonking, Lusty and Mac - A tale of unrequited love, jealousy and violence
  • Skipper Classification - Important differences you need to know
  • An Unwritten Law of Bowls - When you need to lift your kilt
  • A Lead Remembers - How a novice won the bloody game
  • An Australian Hogmanay - Or how to bowl with a haggis
  • Horrible Etiquette - How to upset the opposition
  • When the Skip Goes Crook - What their words of wisdom really mean
But don't be satisfied with the flavour; buy the book now and relish the total experience! For orders within Australia please write to
