”'This really is Walliams at his most indulgently gross and silly - the perfect combination for thousands of his loyal fans” - Daily Mail

”'Laugh-out-loud funny and…downright disgusting” - Daily Express

”'Often described as the modern-day Roald Dahl, Walliams is a big author with big ideas and plenty of illustrations, all combining to make for real page-turners, even for kids who would normally look at you as if you’re mad to suggest reading for pleasure” - The Independent
