Morris Gleitzman wrote his first children's novel in 1985. His brilliantly comic style has endeared him to children and adults alike, and he is now one of Australasia's best-selling authors. One of his most successful books. Two Weeks with the Queen, was made into a play which has been staged in many countries. All of his more recent books, including Blabber Mouth, Sticky Beak, Bumface, Gift of the Gab, Toad Rage and Toad Heaven, have been runaway successes.
