Author(s): Morris Gleitzman

Middle Fiction

Bumface! that's who Angus wants to be. He dreams of being bold, brave, wild and free. Like the pirate in the stories he tells his younger brother and sister. Instead, Angus is just plain tired from changing nappies and wiping food off walls. His mum calls him Mr Dependable, but Angus can barely cope. Another baby would be a disaster.
With characteristic wit, Morris Gleitzman weaves an unpredictable, hilarious and finally moving story about kids trying to make sense of an adult world.
