Morris Gleitzman offers this modern fable with both humor and tenderness. Struggling with sibling rivalry, his brother Luke’s cancer, and getting attention from his parents, young Colin searches for answers in quirky places. Sent away to a distant aunt and uncle so his parents can take care of his brother, Colin proceeds to work on finding the best doctor in the world to save Luke. In a truly adolescent-sounding voice and attitude, Gleitzman portrays the inner workings of a young person struggling to find his place in the world. A serious message is delivered amidst offbeat humor. This is Gleitzman at his best in both dialogue and imagery. As a clever author and raconteur, he hits at both the heart and the funny bone. D.L.M.
