Book Description

4 Oct 2001
The kitchen was a mess. Half the stuff from the fridge was on the floor, and there was a trail of flour running along the passage. For a second Jake thought the magazine people must have had an urge to make a cake. Or, was there someone else in the house?

4.0 out of 5 stars Morris Gleitzman: 'Adults Only' Review 29 Feb 2004
'Jake's an only kid.
He's the only kid in his family.
He's the only kid on his island.
Or that's what he thinks...'
Jake lives on a remote island with his parents, a getaway spot for adults, and only adults. He has no friends, expect a scruffy teddy called Crusher, and he has to stay out of the way of the guests, so its no wonder he feels lonely. He feels like he is unwanted, why else would his parents have an adult only island. Then, some reviewers come to the island. Jake tries to help, wishing that they could leave the island, but instead ends up creating complete and utter chaos. He thinks its unfair, but them discovers the islands true history, and why his parents say 'adults only' hotel.
Morris Gleitzman as always has written a book that puts the character in a painful and emotional position, and as with most of his books it shows the stormy relationship between a child and their parents. It is amazing how Morris Gleitzman can show such deep emotion, yet still make it so funny, it still leaves you holding your sides with laughter. This is a great book for all ages and is a star buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down 18 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Although I am an adult, I found this book etremely compelling and hard to put down. Not only is it hilarious, but also had some more serious elements to it. It is a story that teaches morals to young children in a fun an exciting way. Jake is a loveable character and it is so interesting seeeing how he gets himself out of the sticky situations he constantly finds himself in. I could read this book again and again.The things that supposedly come out of 'Crusher's' (the teddy bear's) mouth are just hilarious. A very good book and I recommend it strongly for middle and upper primary level readers.
