Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Midnight Gang!

Midnight is the time when all children are fast asleep, except of course for...the Midnight Gang. That is when their adventures are just beginning....

When Tom gets hit on the head by a cricket ball, he finds himself at Lord Funt Hospital and is greeted by a terrifying-looking porter. Things go from bad to worse when he meets the wicked matron in charge of the children's ward.... But Tom is about to embark on the most thrilling journey of a lifetime!

The Midnight Gang tells an extraordinarily heartwarming and, of course, funny story of five children on a hospital ward and on a quest for adventure! It is a story of friendship and magic - and of making dreams come true.

Listeners are set to be utterly spellbound by this heartfelt story that will bring magic to everyone's Christmas.

Absoloutely Brilliant!

Would you listen to The Midnight Gang again? Why?

Yes! I am sure that I will be listening to this again because it was simply fantastic. It was everything you could hope for in a story. It made me laugh and made me cry, I also adore the characters.

What did you like best about this story?

I love that this was a story about ordinary sickly children doing extraordinary brilliant things in the interests of helping other children.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

This book was brilliantly narrated throughout by Walliams himself and a number of other people.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I could not stop listening!

Any additional comments?

This is a fantastic book, I am an adult and loved every bit of it. Not to be missed!

I liked it 😕😕😕😕😕

My Review:
The Matron is the worst character there.
I hate the voice of Matron
She sounds like a pig with makeup 💄 💅🧼
I wish that Sally’s dream comes true once she leaves the hospital 🏥!
When it comes to breaking rules at the hospital is a HUGE ño ño
Ño 👎.
That’s my bad review!
I HATED IT!😠😠😠

Brilliant!

Audiobooks and this story helped me survive 2 weeks flat on my back (in hospital). Thank you David Walliams and all the other contributors.
Loved it ... as l'm sure lots of other kids (young and old) will do too.
