The precocious Keith Shipley is back in this audiobook from beloved children’s author, Morris Gleitzman. With his parents’ relationship on the rocks, due, Keith thinks, mostly to financial troubles, he hatches an incredible plan to escape to the Barrier Reef to harvest opal and make a fortune. Performed with a pleasant enthusiasm by Gleitzman himself, Worry Warts is the funny yet tender story of one boy’s attempts to save his parents’ marriage. After a long and entertaining adventure, young Keith manages to learn not only an important lesson about relationships, but also about himself.
What does a kid do when his Mum and Dad are worry warts? Make them rich, decides Keith. Very very rich. It's a brilliant plan, if it works.
