    Morris Gleitzman was an author back from when I was in Primary school but it was so long since I have read one of his books I forgot if I even had finished reading one. It was with my surprise therefore I I found out that my feelings of joy and praise was justified when reading this, it was funny with most of the humour coming from not from dialogue but the first person thoughts from the mute lead character.Very heavy on Aussie slang but in all honesty I wouldn’t call that a drawback for those that live outside of Australia especially if they want to know more about traditional/outback culture Australia has. Good read and I recommend it.

    Sticky Beak by Morris Gleitzman and Gift of the Gab by Morris Gleitzman3rd grade and up – Realistic Fiction, Australia – I wouldn’t stop reading when I started Sticky Beak… had to continue immediately and finish reading Gift of the Gab. Special books to enjoy, glad I made time to read the trilogy or as the publishers called The Blabber Mouth Collection. Loved going back to the world of loud country music, crazy birds, funny situations with tempers flaring, and especially families growing and various situations from murder to pesticide overuse. Just one packed set of books with a main character who is mute but bursting with conversations. Brilliant beginning to end…

    Morris Gleitzman was a favorite author when I was in primary school and I read everything he put out. The covers were quirky and weird, and every time I laughed and wanted more.*Note, I haven't read these books since I was a child myself, so this review will be repeated across all of Gleitzman's books I marked as read many years ago ;)

    Also read to me by my friend, and we'll move on to the 3rd (and final) next week I hope. I never thought I'd enjoy having a book read to me so much. Enjoyed this slightly less than the first, but that may have been me not focusing as well as I should've.

    Sequel to Blabber Mouth; standard fare. Now, was this the one where she hired the sky-writer to write PULL YOUR HEAD IN DAD or was that the first? Because that was classic!

    lucu aja, dan sangat ringan gaya berceritanya-- yang khas banget tulisan Om Morris iki, penuh dengan pemikiran-pemikiran tokohnya yang nyleneh kemana-mana.

    A cute book for kids. Dunno why I read it really, but I bought it years ago and couldn't remember ever opening it. Gleitzman is a funny guy.

    Morris Gleitzman was one of my absolute favourite childhood authors - I even got his autograph! His books are light and easy to read and have a comedic value only Andy Griffiths could match.
