Welcome to the Midnight Gang!
Midnight is the time when all children are fast asleep, except of course for...the Midnight Gang. That is when their adventures are just beginning....
When Tom gets hit on the head by a cricket ball, he finds himself at Lord Funt Hospital and is greeted by a terrifying-looking porter. Things go from bad to worse when he meets the wicked matron in charge of the children's ward.... But Tom is about to embark on the most thrilling journey of a lifetime!
The Midnight Gang tells an extraordinarily heartwarming and, of course, funny story of five children on a hospital ward and on a quest for adventure! It is a story of friendship and magic - and of making dreams come true.
Listeners are set to be utterly spellbound by this heartfelt story that will bring magic to everyone's Christmas.

My first audio book from David walliams and what a corker. Great storyline, likeable characters, humour and sadness all expertly handled, this is a real winner. Would recommend for all ages
I have 8 more audio books but none of them are as good as this one.I love it and would recommend it to everyone who loves hospital adventures.
My children loved listening to this tale in the car. They couldn't wait to continue hearing about the friends young Tom made in Lord Funt hospital and together we despised the mean ward matron and evil school headmaster. Most of all, the imaginative adventures the gang get up to at midnight, aided by the kindly but disfigured porter are the stuff of all the best imaginative play days...or nights! Some genuine laugh out loud moments, all delivered with delicious timing by David Walliams. 'cornflake and ketchup' anyone?! . Download and listen, you won't regret.

I am a big David Walliams fan so thought I would give it a go and I was not disappointed. Fun story and a lovely idea - fun for sick kids. Enjoyed the voices.
Knowledge is King and books a great way to gain that knowlege. Build yourself as your brand
My 9 year old and I just love this book. We listen to it again and again.
This book is amazing. I throughly enjoyed it. The music was a really nice touch and made the book almost feel real. Due to so many voices used throughout the experience was more enjoyable. The storyline was amazing and the character descriptions brought the story to life allowing the reader to delve deeper into the story but the descriptions still left room for your imagination to go wild. The ending was perfect with a good climax and the same goes for the beginning.
I would definitely recommend this book to all ages but I believe this is a good book for the whole family to sit down and enjoy together.
Well done to all those involved in the writing and recording of this book it is an amazing book, and everyone should be proud. Especially David Walliams. I have read his books for a very long time and I have never been disappointed.
