A lovely continuation from the first 2 books and even more creativity.. I preordered for my daughters 9th birthday and she’s already ploughed through most of it. Lovely colour drawings liberally scattered on most pages.
He’s vulgar, the books inappropriate in parts.... but you know what....my 7 year old loves it. It’s in context and kids will be able to understand the mad humour and way in which the book is written...
I bought this for my 10 year old nephew. He really enjoys these books, they're fun, colourful and the illustrations are great. In fact, before I wrapped it, I took a sneaky peak to see what all the fuss is about, and actually I can easily see how this book encourages reading and makes it fun and enjoyable. I quite liked what I read myself, which is an achievement as i'm not much of a reader at all, so top marks! Would recommend. The book in hardback adds quality and in particular the front cover colour of yellow and gold is vibrant and grabs your attention. Quick despatch and delivery by the seller.
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.
David Walliams makes a great read for girls and boys alike. My eldest (age 10) loves these books in particular and has read every book he’s written (I’m sure she’s not alone) Only negative is that it’s such a great story line the book is finished before you know it. Hard to imagine how any 8-10 year old wouldn’t love this series of books! An addictive read!!
