Book Trailer for Once by Morris Gleitzman

Once I escaped from an orphanage to find my Mum and Dad.

Once I saved a girl called Zelda from a burning house.

Once I made a Nazi with toothache laugh.

My name is Felix.

This is my story.

This is a touching, beautiful book that is perfect to read to grade 5/6 children, as I have done. This book was the springboard to some of the deepest, most meaningful discussions I’ve had with schoolkids about youth, prejudice, war, Hitler, family and friends. I highly recommend “Once” and the sequel, “Then”.
