Friday, March 31, 2017 - 4:31 PM

The East Fremantle Football Club would like to congratulate number 17, Timothy Bristow on the launch of his second book, ‘I’m the Best’.

Centred around the theme of sibling rivalry, “I’m the Best” is based on the character Billy from the first book, Billy the Brilliant.

“It’s sort of based around my childhood and the sibling rivalry with my brother James, who we’re all pretty familiar with at the Sharks,” he said.

“The book is trying to draw on memories and give people the opportunity to not only sit down and have a fun time with the reading experience, but reminisce on some of their own sibling rivalries stories.”

“It’s a bit of fun with lots of values involved, highlighting that unconditional love we have for our family.”

Illustrated by his partner Natalie Martin, the book uses OpenDyslexic font to help readers of all abilities.

The couple have partnered with the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation and will donate three dollars from the sale of every book.  

Wednesday’s launch at the Left Bank was a great community turnout that helped raised vital funds for the Children’s Foundation.

The pair we’re blown away with the generosity of those in attendance, particularly in the silent and live auctions.

“We were really lucky to have a significant contribution at the launch, everyone dug deep. The Perth Children’s hospital does an amazing job so we’re really happy to be on board with them,” Bristow said.  

Ex-Fremantle Docker Luke McPharlin shared his own stories of sibling rivalry, highlighting that some of the fiercest competition can be fought a home rather than on the footy field.
