Gleitzman cleverly takes on many of the problems and difficulties of growing up and caring about others. Keith's concerned about his parents after their divorce--he wants them to get into better shape so they can find new partners and not remain alone and lonely. His undertaking has hilarious and unexpected results as things turn out quite different from what he plans. Gleitzman deftly narrates his own work, an added bonus since the characters are both Londoners and Aussies. (Gleitzman was born in England and has lived many years in Australia.) This humorous story captures the always thorny topics of weight consciousness and familial love. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
