    Story
    "Another hilarious, touching David Walliam's book"
    If you could sum up Awful Auntie in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, evil and cruel.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was Gibbons the butler. He is silly in a funny way. My usual in David Walliam's books is Rajah but just you wait and see.....!


    Which character โ€“ as performed by the narrators โ€“ was your favourite?

    My favourite character preformed by Walliams is Wagna the owl because it really sounds like there is an owl in your ear!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the part when they planned revenge


    Any additional comments?

    I had to ration my time listening to the book each evening as I didn't want it to be over too quick! David Walliams is such a brilliant narrator you wouldn't know it was the same person doing the voices. Last bit of book hilarious.

    Story
    "Best David Walliams book to date"

    The whole family loved this book for so many reasons. I think it will become a timeless classic. It is extremely funny, not too sad, and not too gruesome. It is perfectly narrated by David Walliams as always. 12 year old artistocrat Stella is left in the care of her Awful Aunt Alberta, when her parents pass away in car accident. All is not as it seems at Saxby Hall, and Aunt Alberta does not have Stella's best interests at heart. The story line is hilarious, even the slightly sad bits, and it was a joy to listen to. There are magical elements in the form of a friendly ghost, which truly made this book special.

    "Delightfully frightful."
    What made the experience of listening to Awful Auntie the most enjoyable?

    My family are great Walliams fans.It was lovely to listen to David Walliams intonation and voice.You really felt what bits he enjoyed most writing, what he thought was important and awfully scary .


    What other book might you compare Awful Auntie to, and why?

    Most of the Williams books have the same theme. Kid against grown up evil. According to our 10yr old Demon Dentist was the most comparable.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldnโ€™t experience if you had only read the book?

    Having him reading the book to you was like sitting in the room with a great storyteller. As mentioned before, it was nice to have his interpretation.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Must see before Halloween. :-D


    Any additional comments?

    We can't have enough David Walliams books.

    "Urgh"

    Brilliant story unfortunately ruined for probably anyone who has any knowledge of Austria and its composers . cannot believe that someone as knowledgeable as David Walliam's, or anyone editing this book, could accuse Johann Strauss of being German. This is like saying Winston Churchill was French. sorry, it may sound petty, but this glaring error really ruined the book. please sort it out. thanks.
