“Morris Gleitzman has a rare gift for writing very funny stories and an even rarer gift of wrapping very serious stories inside them.” – The Guardian.

The final powerful episode in the life of Felix, hero of the moving and multi-award-winning Once, Then, After, Soon, Maybe and Now. Includes a personal Afterword from the author, Morris Gleitzman … It’s 15 years since readers were first introduced to Felix in Once and, across six celebrated books, our brave young hero has survived many unforgettable and emotional journeys. 2021 sees the publication of the seventh and final part of Felix’s story.
