Two Weeks With The Queen
When the doctors announce that his brother's cancer is incurable, Colin decides to go and see the Queen about it... What follows - his hilarious attempts to bypass Buckingham Palace protocol, the exceptional people he meets, and the tragedy that allows him to face his own grief - is a story of extraordinary power and poignancy. Two Weeks with the Queen is a heartbreaking, side-splitting novel for young and old alike.
'To write a funny book which includes a child dying of cancer and a youth of AIDS looks to be not only impossible but in dubious taste as well. Gleitzman shows otherwise. The irrepressibility of his Australian hero, sent to stay with appalling relatives in London, is nothing if not affirmative; and the jokes finally heighten rather than diminish the book's serious implications.' THE TIMES
'...one of the best books I've ever read. It's funny, moving, and it handles difficult subjects with skill and great respect. I'm glad that I've read it. I wish that I had written it.' PAULA DANZIGER
This book is amazing. Two weeks with the queen is about a boy who's brother has just been diagnosed with cancer. When he is forced to stay with his aunt, uncle and cousin in England for a while, he decides to go to any extreme to make sure his brother gets better. Even if it means going to see the queen...
This book is a must read for anyone who's relatives have got cancer or... oh stuff that. Everyone will love this heartwarming book. You'd be crazy not to.
Two weeks with the queen is about a boy who`s younger brother is suddently diognosed with a deadly cancer, so he plans to go to the place where he could find the best doctor in the world......In london.
this book is very sad and happy at the same time. morris gleitzman is very good at capturing the determination of young children. it is about a boy whos little brother gets cancer. he is jelous of his brother because he got a better cristmas present than him, and then his brother suddenly falls over. he goes to hospital in sydney, and then the boy has to go to live with his aunt and uncle and cousin in england. he tries to get the queen to help him cure his brother, but he cant and he goes back to australia, and his brother dies.
The book is called Two Weeks With The Queen by Morris Gleitzman. The book is for children and young adults. Colin and Luke are the main characters in the book. The main setting is in England and Sydney.
Colin had a very sick brother in hospital so Colin had to go to England to see the queen. Colin had met a few people on the way.
I think that it is a good book to read. There are quite a few journey's through the book. The only thing that could have been improved is for the book to be a long length because the book is quite short.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes shorter stories and easier to read books.
