The first story in the hilarious and heartwarming Keith Shipley trilogy from Australia's funniest children's author. 'I'm only going to say this once more,' said Dad, 'so listen very carefully. We are not ever, under any circumstances, going to Australia.' What does a kid do when his Mum and Dad are misery guts? Move them to a tropical paradise, decides Keith. That'll cheer them up. It's a brilliant plan – if he can pull it off. Honour Book for Younger Readers, Australian Children's Book of the Year Awards 1992.
