    Comments about Once and Then:

    I grew up before MG was writing so this is the first time I have read any of his work. I bought this for a friend's son but wanted to read it beforehand.


    The language is deceptively simple but the story zooms along and the horror of the situation is clearly conveyed. As an adult reader I was gripped and I imagine younger readers will also be hooked.

    Morris Gleitzman

    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 one of Australia's most popular children's authors.
