Morris Gleitzman grew up in England and came to Australia when he was sixteen.
After university he worked for ten years as a screenwriter. Then he had a wonderful experience.
He wrote a novel for young people. Now, after 36 books, he's one of Australia's most popular children's authors.
In February 2018 Morris was chosen as the Australian Children’s Laureate for 2018-19.
‘I want to be an ambassador for the fears and hopes and dreams and dreads that young people have as they contemplate and navigate today’s world, and also as they think about the possibilities of their future adult worlds,’ Gleitzman said.
‘Much of my time will be spent championing stories as a medium for young people to engage creatively with those possibilities. Stories reveal themselves in our imaginations, our intellects and our emotions—all places where we work on our own destinies.’
