This is an unremarkably good book by classic author David Williams. I really enjoyed reading this and I was kind of sad when I finished reading this, I can even say this is the best book in the whole universe because of the technique David William uses.
This book is about a girl who lost both of her parents in a terrible car accident. Her auntie is the worst auntie I’ve ever heard, I can even feel through the book because of the word that David Williams use is really amazing it is not a hard word like substantiation which means bad. I think this book must be in the history of classic books in the future. This book is made out of thousands of fabulous ideas of David Williams that I can’t even think of. My favourite part of this book is the part when the girl meets the ghost because the dialogue of the girl and the ghost is so funny and I love it.
This is really amazing book for about 6~11 years old. In my opinion, this is the best book by David Williams because it has everything that good book needs like fabulous ideas, words and story. Through this book, I have learned how lucky I am with both of my parents and have enough money to live, I think kind of feeling is really important and it is hard to feel when you think this is normal but this book can tell it all. This is really good book and I think that is why it has a movie too.
Finally, I just want to say that this book is fantastic but I recommend buying this as Audiobook because you can actually hear and see the story. But overall this book is superb.
Thank you for reading this

While we have enjoyed other David Walliams books such as Gangsta Granny, Mr Stink and The Midnight Gang we found that Awful Auntie along with Demon Dentist are our favourites. It is packed with great descriptions like Stella's scream in terror when Stella met Soot. David Walliam's character descriptions are awesome and we really like Soot and all of the other characters. In this book Stella had to solve the mystery of her parents' death as well escaping from Awful Auntie. Tony Ross pictures' looked old fashioned and added to the story. We love the way that David Walliams added Gibbon to the story to make it funnier. Saxby Hall was a great setting for the story because it's a mansion with lots of rooms and grounds. This book is suitable for boys and girls aged 8 and upwards. Younger children might get scared or not understand.
He read quickly but it is emotional and little bit scary book. In starting it shows my son was upset and emotional when Stellas parents died and auntie puts her in cellar..
David Williams books are mostly depends on imaginary stories. Whenever kids start reading his books the take a lot interst and finished very quickly.
In this book his illustrate Tiny Ross did well. Some books has movies as well so kids enjoyed a lot if they already read so my son asked if this story book movie released.
David William books are worthy, not only kids enjoyed elders as well.
