Two Weeks with the Queen

Morris Gleitzman

‘I need to see the Queen about my sick brother.’ Colin Mudford is on a quest. His brother Luke has cancer and the doctors in Australia don’t seem to be able to cure him. Sent to London to stay with relatives, Colin is desperate to do something to help Luke. He wants to find the best the doctor in the world. Where better to start than by going to the top? Colin is determined to ask the Queen for her advice. In Morris Gleitzman’s trademark style, this very moving story illuminates deeply serious issues about illness and loss with bright moments of humour.
