Made me laugh out loud and I m a granny reading it to grand kids is a pleasure so funny the mans a genius It s not as funny as previous books Kids found it quite boring and patter repetitive. My eldest is happily ploughing her way through David Walliams latest collection of short stories and says the teachers theme makes a nice change from The World s Worst Children, which he has churned out time and time again over the past few summers.Let s face it, Walliams books are never going to be examples of well written children s literature but children, especially those in the 8 14 age bracket, absolutely love them so he s obviously doing something right. After 3 books of kids, it s the teachers turn for turning into such gloriously horrific and twisted stories that you really have to wonder where they come from My 8YO and 10YO girls both fought to read the book first when it arrived, and having read a couple of the stories I can see why It s not often you see that from a book for kids outside of a certain wizards world.One thing worth mentioning is the hardback Again, beautiful and generous illustrations on almost every page, all worked into the story in sometimes a comic book feel that brings the story telling vividly to life without taking over from the actual reading.The dust jackets on our books always get lost, but the hardback without dust jacket is equally attractive on David Walliams books I always take it off to look at the pictures.Setting a hugely high bar for creativity, tapping into what kids love, and longevity David Walliams might not be the Best kids author ever, but pretty much everything he writes is SO accessible to girls and boys of a wide range of ages Who else is guaranteed an annual Xmas dramatisation each year.
