Summary
In Worry Warts Keith's ungrateful parents, now re-homed in an Australian tropical paradise, are still giving him headaches. But now the problem seems to be a financial one. Once again Keith tries using all his entrepreneurial and artistic skills to put things right. This time it's a question of opal hunting. But will his adventure-packed trip to the opal fields save them all from spending the rest of their lives as "worry warts"? One thing's for sure-- Keith's story is so funny and so entertaining that while you're reading your only worry is when it is going to end
