yup-- Gleitzman sekali lagi berhasil membuatku tersenyum-senyum bahkan tertawa saat membaca buku yang satu ini.
Beliau berhasil menghidupkan kekonyolan tokoh utamanya lewat pikirannya yang penuh dugaan karena berpangkal pada kecemasan. Dan seperti buku lainnya yang sudah aku baca, tokoh utamanya dibuat penuh imajinasi liar saat menghadapi gejolak permasalahannya.
Dalam Puppy Fat ini bercerita tentang seorang anak bernama Keith yang mengkhawatirkan kelanjutan kehidupan rumah tangga orang tuanya set

Tidak lelahnya berbagai pihak menyerukan bahwa kecantikan bukan saja dilihat dari tampilan fisik tapi juga dari hati dan otak. Tapi kenyataannya masih banyak orang yang melihatnya dari tampilan luarnya saja. Bahkan kontes pemilihan Miss Universe dan sejenisnya yang mempunyai slogan Brain, Beauty n Behaviour pun masih mementingkan tampilan fisik yang sempurna.

Berbagai iklan produk kecantikan atau apapun yang menggunakan manusia 'sempurna' secara fisik makin menguatkan stigma tentang bagaimana kec

Morris Gleitzman was a favorite author when I was in primary school and I read everything he put out. The covers were quirky and weird, and every time I laughed and wanted more.

*Note, I haven't read these since I was a child myself, so this review will be repeated across all of Gleitzman's books I marked as read many years ago ;)

Lucu, diselesaikan di pesawat menuju Medan. Dipinjam dari toko buku deket rumah, ZOE buat pengisi liburan.

Ceritanya tentang seorang anak yang berusaha membuat orangtuanya bahagia, dibantu oleh teman baiknya yang dari Australia.

Idenya bagus, tentang menghargai bentuk tubuh sendiri dan bahagia dengan apa pun keadaan tubuh kita. Cukup sederhana jg, apalagi targetnya anak-anak. Cuma, plotnya kurang seru.

Morris Gleitzman was one of my absolute favourite childhood authors - I even got his autograph! His books are light and easy to read and have a comedic value only Andy Griffiths could match.

I don't really remember liking this one when I read it in primary school. Nothing stood out to me and don't think I liked the main character very much.

Morris began his writing career as a screenwriter, and wrote his first children's novel in 1985. His brilliantly comic style has endeared him to children and adults alike, and he is now one of Australia's most successful authors, both internationally and at home. He was born in England in 1953 and emigrated to Australia in 1969 so he could escape from school and become a Very Famous Writer.
