Unfortunately for Keith, he’s got a couple of misery guts for parents. Nothing seems to get them to smile and they are always sad and full of dejection. Misery Guts written and performed with a cheerful enthusiasm by award-winning children’s author Morris Gleitzman, is the funny story of Keith and his clumsy but well-intentioned attempts to cheer up his parents. The problem, Keith finally realizes, is the drab and dull setting of England. This epiphany sets off a hilarious chain of events as Keith tries his best to get his family to relocate to the beautiful 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.
