One of our Books of the Year 2016 | October 2016 Book of the Month David Walliams has his finger firmly on the funny bone of the nation’s youth, and little children will love this story of school turned upside-down by an unexpected visitor. It’s bring-your-pet-to-school day, and a host of animals are ushered into the playground. By far the most unusual, brought in by Miranda, a girl who loves to be different, is a python! High jinks follow, wonderfully illustrated by Tony Ross, an artist who excels at depicting children behaving wildly, until the headmistress Miss Bloat puts her foot down. Whether that’s a sensible thing to do with a python will be revealed. Containing just the right amount of anarchy and warmth and speaking directly to its readers, this is set to become a huge favourite. ~ Andrea Reece
