My son has been asked to read at least 4 books additonal to the mandatory reading they have. He's not much of a reader so I was trying to find books that will interest him. And this book did! He loved it, he read it in little time. He had to make a presentation to his classmates and after his presentation, some of this classmates asked if they could borrow the book! I would definitely recommend this book as well as "Nanny Gangster" from the same author. My son is 10 years-old and he's in 5th grade.
Funny book! Kids enjoyed me reading it too them. Will require some minimal translation for American kids - not much. There are some potentially risque topics - page 3 girls. If reading aloud you can always leave out some of the meaning/words and still get the point across. I like that it had some adult humor and kid gross-out humor. Will buy other books by the author.
My 10 year old daughter recently discovered David Walliams' books and it was an instantaneous love. Too bad we have to order them from international sellers, since domestic sellers only carry 2-3 of his latest books.
This book was good,but... not approprite. It includes "Page 3" girls and this was a shocker. Talking about references to plastic surgery. Come on. I wouldnt buy for under 9s. But overall, a good book for over 10s.
