Publisher's Summary

Dear Your Majesty the Queen,

I need to speak to you urgently about my brother Luke. He's got cancer and the doctors in Australia are being really slack. If I could borrow your top doctor for a few days I know he/she would fix things up in no time. Of course Mum and Dad would pay his/her fares even if it meant selling the car or getting a loan. Please contact me at the above address urgently.

Yours sincerely
Colin Mudford

PS: This is not a hoax.

Ring the above number and Aunty Iris will tell you.

Hang up if a man answers.

If you want something done properly, Colin reckons, go straight to the top!

Critic Reviews

"Morris Gleitzman offers this modern fable with both humor and tenderness...This is Gleitzman at his best in both dialogue and imagery...he hits at both the heart and the funny bone." (AudioFile)

My favourite book of all time

I remember reading this book around 25 years ago when I was a kid. I loved it so much and read it over and over.
Recently it popped into my head, and listening to the audio book I think I loved it even more. This book makes you laugh and cry throughout. What an absolute gem. Thank you Morris Gleitzman.
