Book Overview


All eight hilarious and heart-warming stories from number one bestselling children’s author, David Walliams, together for the first time in this BUMPER-TASTIC CD collection, read by the author himself!

THE BOY IN THE DRESS:
Dennis’s very ordinary life is about to get a lot more extraordinary. Why? There’s a clue in the title of this book…

MR STINK:
When Chloe decides to hide a homeless man in her garden shed, she discovers there’s more to Mr Stink than meets the nose…

GANGSTA GRANNY:
Like most grannies, Ben’s has white hair, false teeth… but she is an international jewel thief too!

BILLIONAIRE BOY:
Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion pounds’ worth of them, in fact. There’s just one thing he doesn’t have – a friend…

RATBURGER:
Can Zoe keep her beloved pet rat safe from the clutches of dastardly Burt of Burt’s Burgers and his dubious burger-making machine?

DEMON DENTIST:
Strange things were happening in the dead of night. When children put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, they would wake to find something creepy in its place. Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it?

AWFUL AUNTIE:
Stella Saxby is the sole heir to Saxby Hall. But awful Aunt Alberta and her giant owl will stop at nothing to get it from her. Luckily, Stella has a secret – and slightly spooky – weapon up her sleeve…

GRANDPA’S GREAT ESCAPE:
Many years ago Grandpa was a World War II flying ace. But when he is sent to old folk’s home Twilight Towers – run by sinister Matron Swine – it’s up to Grandpa and his grandson, Jack, to plot a daring escape…
