Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.

Worse still, they might hand him over to snoopy scientists and he’d spend the rest of his life answering stupid questions. So Selby has vowed to keep his trap shut - even if it kills him! But only fast talking can save him when he’s caught in a cage with Two-Tooth Tina, or is about to be dumped over a cliff, or is going to be sliced into Selby-salami by a gigantic saw blade which is whirring closer and closer...Yikes!
