Theatrical production.

Well read and sweet story. A bit drawn out but a good story for a long trip.

Just the book for my 8year old

Brings the book alive with joy and saddness. Allowing children to live in the book.

Not his best

As a grown woman David Walliams's books have been a guilty pleasure. I've listened to all of his books. Some good, some bad. Delightful escapism. I have to say this isn't the best. I found it boring in comparison to other books. I skipped chapters as it dragged on. That said, in my opinion, his best works are still The Boy in the Dress, Mr Stink, Grandpa's Great Escape and Gangsta Granny. The Ice Monster doesn't come close sadly. I also think that the appearance of Raj in his books adds funny and heartwarming continuity. I like David Walliams very much and wish him continued success with his books. This one simply didn't do it for me.
