The wonder of Walliams!

  I totally agree with Sue Townsend that David Walliams’ books will be classics in the future, it is undeniable that he has a flare for comedy that could rival Dahl. 
I have read a few of his books: Mr Stink, Gangsta Granny (my personal favourite), The Boy in the Dress and Billionaire Boy. Demon Dentist is just as witty and well written as the rest, although this book has a few scary bits too! The main character, Alfie is quite a lonely child who has been made to grow up quite quickly because he is the sole carer for his dad. I really believed in Alfie and have to admit that as with some of Walliams’ other books, I did end up shedding a little tear or two…

I LOVE the fact that Walliams highlighted made up words with a ‘made up word ALERT’ as I think that made up words in writing is underrated. For example, in the picture above, I have chosen my favourite made up word ‘victoriany’ to describe a pair of pants. I can picture the pants perfectly with that description! It may not be a real word, but who cares! It works!
