I expected better.

from David Walliams, along the lines of Roal Dahl. I thought my granddaughters would enjoy this, but it's just gutter humour. Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but this is for the delete button.

super funny and very well interpreted.

My kids love Shila. David Walliams interpretation is excellent although few words are incomprehensible.

Incredibly short

We’ve had a few of David Williams’ audio books before now. They’re always performed with David’s style, with voices similar to characters from Little Britain and Come Fly With Me, which is good to listen to. Normally his books would be long enough to last us a number of car journeys, but this one was incredibly short... build rocket in 3 steps, blast off, arrive at moon by accident, get in wrong rocket by accident and land back on earth, with no more substance than that - very disappointed.
