Once I escaped from an orphanage to find my Mum and Dad.

Once I made a Nazi with toothache laugh.

My name is Felix.

This is my story.

Morris Gleitzman

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.’

  • Beautifully written capturing the hearts of young and old

    I love this book, my daughter loves this book and my son loves this book. Morris Gleitzman has captures your heart with the innocence of Felix and Zelda. You can't but love the characters as you are taken on their journey during a time we would all like to forget and wish never happened. Once you start reading this book, you won't put it down. Followed by Then and After. We have bought all three and am today purchasing the new addition Soon.

    First thing I have to say is that it is one of the most extraordinary books I have ever read! Really sad but amazing the way Gleitzman handled the way he wrote the book. I dont think it could be written any other way! This is the first book in the series of Once, Then and Now, the three books that I absolutely love! I deffinetely recommend this book to anyone who loves reading (or just wants to read something!) and is 12 yrs +. I also recommend it to adults, I really enjoyed it!

    Thanks and i hope this has helped!
