Morris Gleitzman was born in Lincolnshire and moved to Australia in his teens. He worked as a paperboy, a shelf-stacker, a frozen chicken de-froster, an assistant to a fashion designer and more before taking a degree in Professional Writing at Canberra College and becoming a writer. He has written for TV, stage, newspapers and magazines but is best-known for his hugely succesful children's books including Two Weeks with the Queen, Bumface and Once.From AudioFile:
Gleitzmans short stories bring together humor, current events, whimsy, and food for thought. Story topics run the gamut from babysitting for infant twins to a creative solution for global warming, a dad whos new to text-messaging, and germs going on vacation. Gleitzman rises to the challenge of narrating his own work. He knows each character intimately and brings nuances of voice, inflection, and timing to each, resulting in richer characters and deeper engagement for listeners. The pace is brisk; in fact, the combination of zany stories and Australian accent and word usage can cause brief moments of scrambling to make all the connections. The effort is well worth it. A.R.
