About The Author

Morris Gleitzman grew up in England and came to Australia when he was sixteen. He was a frozen-chicken thawer, sugar-mill rolling-stock unhooker, fashion-industry trainee, student, department-store Santa, TV producer, newspaper columnist and screenwriter. Then he had a wonderful experience. He wrote a novel for young people. Now he's a children's author.

Then, because he was weak from crying, Angus had the thought he'd tried so hard not to have all the way home and all the way through dinner and all the way through wiping the walls and all the way through bathtime.

If it wasn't for you, he thought, looking at Leo and Imogen's sleeping faces I'd still be in the play.

As soon as he had the thought he squashed it.

'I didn't mean it', he whispered.

He kissed them both and pulled a frantically kicking stick insect from Leo's fist and flung it out the window with the thought.

He turned back to the sleeping kids.

They can't help having hopeless dads and a busy mum, he thought. None of us can.

He smoothed their sweaty hair off their foreheads and picked a bit of mashed potato and pumpkin off Imogen's scalp.

He couldn't imagine being without them.

He didn't want to be without them.

They'd only need him full-time for another sixteen or seventeen years and then the rest of his life would be his own.

Angus sighed.

It wasn't that long really.

All he had to desperately hope was that Mum didn't have any more babies.
