Seven hilarious and moving novels from bestselling, critically acclaimed author, David Walliams, in one Super-tastic box-set!
A Review for Gangsta Granny Following in the footsteps of the great Roald Dahl, David Walliams has shown in his previous titles including Mr Stink that he knows how to make his readers laugh! Ben’s granny is really boring; staying with her is a nightmare of eating cabbage, playing Scrabble and being treated like a baby. But then he discovers something rather AMAZING about his dull old gran; she has a biscuit tin full of jewellery including the biggest and most sparkling diamond he has ever seen. Life with a gangsta gran is quite a different thing and soon Ben is off on a wild and hilarious adventure. ~ Julia Eccleshare
A Review for Demon Dentist Best-selling David Walliams hits gold again in this hilarious story about something deeply evil in the unattractive world of teeth. Alfie has rotten teeth and he hates the ghastly ancient dentist Mr Erstwhile. But if he is bad, Miss Roots who insists on being called Mummy, is a whole lot more sinister. When a wasps’ nest, cat pooh, a dirty old verruca sock and other disgusting things are found under children’s pillows in exchange for the teeth they have left out for the tooth fairy, Alfie and his friends know something must be done! Tony Ross’s illustrations give life to Walliams’s grotesque characters and their evil actions. ~ Julia Eccleshare
A Review for Awful Auntie 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
A Review for Billionaire Boy Hugely entertaining, this captivating story is also thought provoking about the perils of having way too much money. Joe Spud is the richest twelve-year-old in the world; he has everything his heart desires – except happiness. As one disaster follows another, Joe and his father both learn the hard way what really matters. David William’s third book for children is a neat combination of hilarity and morality in the best spirit of the master story-teller of the genre, Roald Dahl.
A Review for The Boy in the Dress Touching, funny and full of insight, this tender story tells how Dennis decides that everyone does not have to be the same. Bravely, he decides to do something completely different. Taking a risk he reinvents himself and begins to see the world in a whole new way. Quentin Blake’s illustrations capture the exhilarating liberation that Dennis feels.
A review for Mr Stink The second original, touching, twisted, and most of all hilarious novel for children by David Walliams and beautifully illustrated by Quentin Blake. "Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well…” It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit. But when it looks like he might be driven out of town, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed. Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or the nose.
A review of Ratburger Best-selling author David Williams has come up with another cracker of a story in Ratburger. Zoe is a lovely little girl with a terrible life; she is bullied at school and her stepmother treats her like a slave. And that’s not all. Zoe has adopted Armitage, a pet rat. How can she keep Armitage safe when the dastardly Mr Burt, owner of Burt’s Burgers, wants to put him into a rat burger....?
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...
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?
Ratburger: Can Zoe keep her beloved pet rat safe from the clutches of the dastardly Burt of Burt's Burgers?
Gangsta Granny: Ben's grandma is the boringest grandma ever: all she wants to do is to play Scrabble and eat cabbage soup. But there are two things Ben doesn't know about her: 1) She was once an international jewel thief. 2) All her life, she has been plotting to steal the crown jewels, and now she needs Ben's help...
Billionaire Boy: Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact. He has absolutely everything he could possibly want. But there's just one thing he really needs: a friend...MR STINK: Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well...But there's more to this vagrant than meets the nose!
