    "Sad!!"

    This book was very good. My kids and I enjoy David Williams books, and have since we read Mr. Stink. He has a way of making the books very relatable, even when they are outlandish. This book though, was very sad. It should have definitely had a warning on it. I caught myself and the kids tearing up and various parts. In the end, the book had a very good story with an upbeat ending. I would definitely recommend this book, but be forewarned that there might be some tears popping up.

    "Good fun!"
    Where does Ratburger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listened to this weigh my daughters (how are 6 and 8) whilst on holiday this summer. This is when of the funniest books we have listened too and a up there with other David Walliams books.


    What other book might you compare Ratburger to, and why?

    This book is very like some of the Roald Dahl books, and just as good as the others from the Wailliams, although not quite as funny as Gansta Granny!


    What does David Walliams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    David Walliams is a great with the voices, you forget that it is him reading as he really does 'becomes' the character.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It really maid us all laugh, and there was also som emotion parts to the story too.

    "Nicely gross"

    I listened to this with my 3 little terrors (12, 10 & 9) on a long car journey. For once they were angels, quiet except for raucous laughter at the frequent gross out humour. Hilariously horrible characters surround a typically Walliams central character, who, like the best in childrens' fiction is the most adult of all. The plot has enough surprises for listeners of all ages, and Walliams' narration is, as ever, deliciously charming, bringing every character to life in spectacular fashion. We can't wait for this to be filmed, especially the ending!

    "9 year old son's review of Favourite book"



    Ratburger is the best book I have ever listened to.



    Ratburger can a bit heartbreaking in some parts, as exampled when Ginger Nut (pet hamster) dies.The way some of it is put together is just phenomenal but also incredibly hilarious. Mr Grave is one of the teachers at Zoe’s school and he is a bit bonkers, there are lots of funny parts in this book. In the story there are two uses of bad language not to be said but it didn’t matter. Review by Oliver aged 9
