He is 9! He read me the first page on FaceTime. Bless him.
Thank you 😊
Another fab read for the kids!
As with every DW book there is a deeper meaning, a sense of righting a wrong and championing the underdog and why not?! DW is always so on the mark with representation and diversity, he manages to confront issues but in a way children will comprehend and can dream they too can overcome adversity and be the hero of their own story. He also pokes fun at some of his own stereotypes - Raj the newsagent?!
I loved seeing Ned's and Jemima's relationship change as Ned finds his courage and has one heck of an adventure. Jemima becomes a better sister and Slime is well fab! Slime reminded me of a modern-day Mary Poppins (it makes sense when you read it).
The illustrations are fab and I'm looking out for a Walliamson dictionary - Keep up the the good work DW!
Author: David Walliams
Illustrator: Tony Ross
Genre: Humorous fiction
Ned is just an ordinary boy who lives in a small house near the sea. He uses a wheelchair, learnt tricks on his wheelchair and normally shouts,” I’ve got the zoomies!” Ned has a brilliant taste for adventure but sadly has been bullied all his life by his older sister, Jemima. But then he creates an extraordinary friend.
Slime is a friend that Ned accidentally creates, and he becomes Ned’s best friend. He is a yellow blob that can translime into anything Ned asks him to. Slime loves to create mischief with Ned, so they are the best of friends.
Ned and his family live in a tiny home right next to a cliff. It is on the Isle of Mulch, a small island in between the islands Twaddle and Stench. It is jampacked with nasty adults like Madame Solenzo Sloth (the laziest piano teacher ever) and Glen and Glenda Glutton (horrible ice-cream sellers). Ned’s aunt, Aunt Greta Greed, owns the island, has 101 cats and loathes children. The only fish available to eat are the disgusting shoe fish-which Ned’s father fishes. The Isle of Mulch has been treated unfairly by adults for years-now it is time for Ned, Slime, and the rest of the children to get their revenge…
This book is really funny so I would give 5/5 stars for it. I would recommend this book for 6-16-year-olds because it is a great book. My favorite part of the book is definitely when Ned and Slime give revenge to the adults! It is also good because there is almost a little star on every page explaining all the funny made-up-words David Walliams creates like slime-o-cycle and sloctopus! I recommend this awesome book to you!
Written by my son, Harry, who is 10 years old.
