Editorial Reviews

The precocious Keith Shipley is back in this audiobook from beloved children’s author, Morris Gleitzman. With his parents’ relationship on the rocks, due, Keith thinks, mostly to financial troubles, he hatches an incredible plan to escape to the Barrier Reef to harvest opal and make a fortune. Performed with a pleasant enthusiasm by Gleitzman himself, Worry Warts is the funny yet tender story of one boy’s attempts to save his parents’ marriage. After a long and entertaining adventure, young Keith manages to learn not only an important lesson about relationships, but also about himself.

Publisher's Summary

Dear Mum and Dad,
This is just to let you know that I took the torch, the hammer, the gardening trowel, the plastic strainer, the chocolate biscuits, and the stuff that's missing from the bathroom. So it's okay, you haven't been burgled. Please don't worry, things are looking better than I thought, opal-wise.
Love Keith.

What does a kid do when his Mum and Dad are worry warts? Make them rich, decides Keith. Very very rich. It's a brilliant plan, if it works.
