He's good at changing nappies.
He's brilliant at wiping food off walls.
His mum calls him Mr Dependable.
But Angus is desperate to be wild and baby-free.
Can a bold and brave plan stop his mum from getting pregnant again?

In Bumface, Morris Gleitzman delves into the complex world of childhood responsibilities through the eyes of Angus, a young boy who dreams of a life of freedom and adventure as a pirate.

But instead of living his dreams, Angus finds himself tasked with the care of his younger siblings and consumed with the worries of preventing his mother from having another baby.

That is, until he meets Rindi and discovers that he's not alone in his struggles.

Exploring the themes of responsibility, family, and the longing for independence, Bumface offers a captivating and authentic look at the realities of modern childhood. About The Author
