Felix and Zelda: Maybe

Finally: the war’s over. But the violence isn’t. Can Felix and Anya find safety? It’s great when a war ends. But your problems don’t stop when the ceasefire starts. Hunger, disease and hostile soldiers don’t just pack up their bags and go home. As for Felix, Gabriel and Anya, they no longer have homes to go back to. So they go back to the farmhouse instead. But the locals make it very clear that they’re not welcome. After a violent scene in the market square, they don’t feel welcome anywhere – until Felix is offered a chance to go to Australia. Should he stay and try to put the pieces of his past life back together? Or should he and Anya take a chance, and forge a new life in a new home?

    Morris Gleitzman

    One of Australia’s, and now the world’s, best-known and loved children’s authors, Morris Gleitzman tackles tough subjects in a funny and offbeat way. He has never set out to write “issues books” and says that his writing is as much for himself as for his readers.


    Morris has won many awards in Australia, including the YABBA award for Bumface and Toad Rage, and won the 2013 Redbridge Book Award for After.
