Always Series: Felix and Zelda book 7
Penguin Random House
‘Always’ is the final novel in Morris Gleitzman’s seven-book series, ‘Felix and Zelda’. The series covers a massive landscape geographically from Poland to Australia and from the 1940s through contemporary times. The series is the story of persecution of cultural groups and the impact that this continues to have on society. Now, in this final story, young Wassim, 10 years of age, battles racism and gang violence in contemporary Poland. Using analytical thinking, Wassim uncovers a story about Felix Salinger, our hero from the first book in the series. Felix was then 10 years old like Wassim is now. Felix is now 87. Both have battled racism and persecution, and together they will defeat it again, but not without moments of terror and great anguish. ‘Always’, like the entire series, is riveting and unforgettable. This is a story for all times with characters of great resilience. Teacher’s Resources for this book are available from the publisher’s website.
