The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for The Bookseller's Book of the Year - One of our Books of the Year 2014 - One of the Lovereading4kids Readers' Choice Books of the Year 2014 Best-selling David Walliams is back on top form with Awful Auntie. Stella Saxby is the unfortunate owner of the awful auntie! Throughout her life, the dreadful aunt Alberta has squandered the family fortunes. Following the death of Stella’s parents, Alberta is determined to get her hands on the enormous Saxby Hall. Resourceful Stella is determined to stop her aunt and she charges through every adversity thrown in her way to do so. Pairing up with a resident ghostly chimney boy turns out to be the key to resolving a family mystery too. ~ Julia Eccleshare
The Good Book Guide Review. Heir to Saxby Hall, Stella wakes up one day to find her parents gone and her evil Aunt Alberta in charge. Aunt Alberta wants the Hall and will do anything to get it. Can Stella stop her? Another hilarious story full of Walliams’ madcap humour.
~ Andrea Rayner
