Gleitzman, Morris



Published Date



Felix is now in his 80s and a retired doctor. He struggles to understand the events of his childhood and suffers from ‘survivor’s guilt’ that can haunt those who survive horrific events. His granddaughter, Zelda, who is ten-years-old, is named after Felix’s childhood friend. When Zelda experiences bullying, Felix relives his past and resolves horrific memories of the past. Together Zelda and Felix brave a horrific bushfire, Victoria’s Black Saturday, based on this real catastrophe. This event and its aftermath help Zelda understand her namesake and that she too has special strengths.
