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 son, 10 years old, didn't like it at all. Wish I had taken a closer look before buying this book. I agree with him. The book is bullying children who are drewling, can't be wrong, can't stop moving their body etc. Often telltell signs of physical/mental impairment, or for example NPF. Not funny. How could it be? Better to learn that people can be different and how to empathize.
I hate to say this but my son was so excited about this book coming out and likes every other book by David William but he just does like this one. I don’t know if it is because it’s short stories or what it is. I’m just glad that I didn’t buy all three of the worst children books because he doesn’t like it. My son is 13 years old
Despite appreciating that Walliams is trying to appeal to more reluctant readers, this book disappointed my expectations. It's just stories about dribble, snot and farts - not cleverly alluded to as per Dahl and whizz pops. I adore Gansta Granny, but this book left me cold, so much so that I didn't give one of the two books I ordered to the 7year old for whom I had bought it . Shame, because the cover, illustrations and the way the words are displayed are brilliant. The stories however, lack plot and humour.
