I need to speak to you urgently about my brother Luke. He's got cancer and the doctors in Australia are being really slack. If I could borrow your top doctor for a few days I know he/she would fix things up in no time. Of course Mum and Dad would pay his/her fares even if it meant selling the car or getting a loan. Please contact me at the above address urgently.
PS: This is not a hoax.
Ring the above number and Aunty Iris will tell you.
Hang up if a man answers.
If you want something done properly, Colin reckons, go straight to the top!
Morris Gleitzman is one of the world's best-loved children's authors. Two Weeks with the Queen deals with serious issues in a fun, accessible way.
"Morris Gleitzman offers this modern fable with both humor and tenderness...This is Gleitzman at his best in both dialogue and imagery...he hits at both the heart and the funny bone." (AudioFile)
