Yes, this Australian author can be relied upon for laughs and crazy antics, but each story in this collection has a chewy centre that tackles emotional issues with integrity. Morris Gleitzman gives his readers a subtle nudge to ponder some of life's bigger questions, minus condescension.

As in many of his books, Gleitzman’s stories display a wild and clever imagination. Also, too, he appeals to kids’ basic instincts with numerous references to peeing and pooing: ‘Sometimes life does a poo on your head and you just have to wear it.’ And too, he tells his tales in simple, easy-to-read sentences. There's no doubt young readers with a penchant for gross – and more subtle - humour will enjoy this book.
