In 2006, Morris Gleitzman was already one of Australia’s most beloved authors, with generations of young readers inspired and delighted by his wit, compassion and remarkable insight into childhood. Then, with Once, he introduced the world to Felix. Over 15 years, Morris has returned to his writing desk several times to tell the story of this brave, kind, singular boy, charting his life as a child in 1940s Poland to old age in modern Australia. Now comes the seventh and final book: Always. Morris joins ABC RN’s Kate Evans to farewell this remarkable series and celebrate Morris’ trademark gift of laughter and hope in the face of darkness.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
