You have to love Morris Gleitzman! There is something so nice and kind in all that he writes. You feel good. You can even hope that it’s not all going to go horribly wrong. Life is Pizza Cake.
Pizza Cake is a collection of ten funny stories, and oh, how I wish Morris’s unusual perception of teachers could be true! (Or maybe not? You never know.) There is the memory of a grandfather who was brave. The pain of having a funny name.
I didn’t quite get the dad’s diary story, but that was probably just me. Complaining is very me. Was, anyway. Could your sister’s boyfriend be a vampire? And when is funny food actually quite nice?
The importance of paperclips must never be underestimated. Life is always unfair, and writing stories is good.
You’ll enjoy every single one of these tales. I did. The book could have been a lot longer.
(I wanted a normal cover image, but found none, so picked this off Morris’s website. My book is red, not blue. But this will do.)
