'I'm only going to say this once more,' said Dad, 'so listen very carefully. We are not ever, under any circumstance, going to Australia.'

What does a kid do when his Mum and Dad are misery guts?

Move them to a tropical Paradise, decides Keith. That'll cheer them up.

It's a brilliant plan–if he can pull it off.
