I re-read this today, and I could not stop laughing! I had forgotten all the tongue in cheek jokes about Australian culture! Some of the things I laughed at were:

The minister for kulture (and footy) (sic.)
The minister for meat pies and tomato sauce

The fact that the minister for foreign affairs was away on holiday in Bali

The Prime Minister being tired from looking through "heaps of tourist brochures to decide on his next overseas trip... work that was both confusing and exhausting!"

"The navy only
Jack Kirby and the X-man

I read this book as a child and absolutely loved it.

It was a funny, well written and interesting book for a 7 year old and remained a fave for years to come.
