About the Author

Morris Gleitzman was born in England and moved to Australia when he was sixteen. He started work in television, becoming a screenwriter and newspaper columnist. His children's books now top the Australian best-seller lists, and his novel TWO WEEKS WITH THE QUEEN was made into a play which opened in London to rave reviews. WATER WINGS is his eighth novel. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

While she's up on the roof retrieving her mother's bra from the chimney, Pearl hopes she won't fall on her pet guinea pig and best friend, Winston. The intrepid Pearl decides that if she had a grandma, she wouldn't be in this situation. However, her warm, fuzzy ideal of a grandma gets a jolt when the real thing comes along. Young listeners will love this wacky, tender, wittily plotted story with serious underpinnings by the award-winning Morris Gleitzman. Mary-Anne Fahey narrates with the cheeky audacity of a young girl on a mission. When Winston develops kidney problems, Fahey is believable as the desperate little girl aching with worries. Her bright, energetic performance makes Pearl as real as any child whose adults don't understand, or appear to be indifferent to, her problems.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
When I was traveling on the plane to go to London,I got this kids pack,and in this kids pack,was a copy of Water Wings.

At first I thought I wouldn't like the book.When I came home I actually read it,and I loved this book.

Pearl shows that you must always have strenghth to accomplish anything.This book goes for a good price,but trust me,it is worth way more than that.

Please,if anything,buy Water Wings.It'll truly touch that soft spot on your heart!
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended April 22 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a total little gem, and deserves a lot more attention than it gets. The kids left it on the table, I picked it up and before I knew I'd read all of it.

Heartfelt and full of emotion.
