    "How many more times can my boy listen to this?"

    This really is a cracking yarn, and brilliantly performed by David Walliams and Matt Lucas. My son has listened to this one over and over - if it had been on an old fashioned format it'd have worn out by now. Thank heavens for MP3!!

    "Enjoyable story"

    This was a fun listen and I would have given it 4 stars. I knocked one off for the over-indulgent insertion of canned sound effects every two or three sentences (or so it seemed at times) underneath the narration. To be honest I became less aware of this by the end of the story, but early on I found it off-putting. Certainly worth a listen though - it had me smiling and laughing a good few times.

    "Very pleasantly surprised"
    What made the experience of listening to The Boy in the Dress the most enjoyable?

    I have to say David Walliams is a great narrator and made this story very enjoyable.


    Have you listened to any of David Walliams and Matt Lucas ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it kept you listening.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a good book and I have just purchased David Walliams other books I am sure they will be equally as good.
