Theatrical production.

Well read and sweet story. A bit drawn out but a good story for a long trip.

Brilliant!

I downloaded that for my daughters (age 10 & 12) for a long road trip we were going on. I think I enjoyed listening to it even more than they did!
David Walliams is a firm favourite in our house and Ice Monster certainly does not disappoint!

Great book!

9/10 as the only thing that’s setting apart me rating it 10/10 is that it is a bit sad so just a warning before you read this book! It also contains guns and stuff. So just a hint before you buy this book.

Amazing

I loved this book from the beginning to the end, great story, great characters and I loved Dottie, Eslie and the voice of Mrs Curdle. It really should be made into a movie. Big thumbs up to David.

Absolutely loved it.

Not just for kids. I was concerned when I heard the first chapter at what I had bought, as it was so sad but it quickly become a delightful story about kindness and courage. I (I mean we) loved it. Thank you.
