Review by MrsSewell
While I was more involved with the first two novels I think Gleitzman has done well to relate the past to the present in this novel. The destruction of the Victorian bushfires in 2009 was a relevant context in which to explore the conclusion of the story of Felix and Zelda. I am glad to have finally read it and definitely recommend it to others who have read Once and Then.
