  • Keith (CHINNY) Chinn

    This was a Christmas present from Gran. (Thanks Gran love you). Its really way below my reading age, I would say max age 11. The story is very short, too many pictures and BOLD capital letters that ar...

    I am very disappointed in this book. It was the worst David Walliams I have ever read. It's violent, dark and it promotes violence. It's a shame because some parts were enjoyable. Firstly the story is...

  • Clive Harrison

    Not that good really, a waste of money about 2000 words, in total, mostly a picture book, dark and dreary, not sure who the target audience is. I was expecting it to be like the Archie Wilson and Beas...

  • ?Amy and Sofie?

    A bit of a childish book. I have grown to old for this but I still enjoy some of it. But I gotta say, walliams is trying to hard to impress now. He used to be so laid back with good books, now it's ju...

    I enjoyed it, I love kid's books. My 7 year old daughter got it from the library, I read it first, in less than 5 hours across 2 days....
