To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My 6 year old likes it but I can tell he doesn’t enjoy it as much as the first one in the series. Still great vocabulary and crazy stories. Exciting and silly enough to grin all the way through. But I didn’t enjoy reading it with my son much as it was a little forced for ideas and seems to try to have a harsh lesson or moral of the story at the end of each story which is a bit rushed and the twist of some quite dark endings to be a bit different, leaving my son a very bemused and a little disappointed. Nothing as good as the 1st book but better than the 2nd book which just seems to be about eating disgusting things. But that’s generally what amuses kids especially boys.
David Walliams's books like gangasta nanny are a class apart, but this one, after I read it to my 7 year old, I ended up wondering, if it was the best investment of son's and my time. My son and I were left shocked, that in one of the stories, one of parents abandoned their worst child in England and moved to Australia, never to see child again. May be, that was the message, author wanted to give, to discourage children from being a worst child. All in all, better read another classical book to your child, as time we have with kids is quite limited anyways.
Prissy Priscilla is a pedant. She never splits an infinitive or uses a preposition to end a sentence with. She enjoys reading to her grandchildren. Secretly, she thinks she is rather good at reading out loud. She is so prissy that she sometimes quotes Oscar Wilde 'There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are either well written or badly written; that is all.'
Prissy Priscilla likes to read the Alice books by Lewis Carroll, The Chronicles of Narnia and the Hobbit books because they are well written by men from Oxford. Isn't Prissy Priscilla a snob? Prissy Priscilla even finds Harry Potter not particularly well written and when it comes to David Walliams, Oh dear!
The trouble is that the grandchildren do not want to hear about what happened when Alice fell down a rabbit hole, what Lucy found at the back of the wardrobe or Bilbo Baggins's adventures. What they love most are impossibly far fetched stories involving pee, snot, earwax, foot cheese and even belly button fluff (with a side order of bottoms). They love 'The World's Worst Children 3' and can't wait for volume 4.
