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.
I did enjoy this book, but as an adult I found it hard to connect to the characters. Hearing my young nephew giggle along to it was priceless. David knows how to connect to children at the same time as teaching them important lessons. Having it read in different characters made it fun and easy listening. Well done David ! 😎
I am a linguist fascinated by anything and everything, especially things that are a bit German or Indian or have something to do with a cat!
Yes! I am sure that I will be listening to this again because it was simply fantastic. It was everything you could hope for in a story. It made me laugh and made me cry, I also adore the characters.
I love that this was a story about ordinary sickly children doing extraordinary brilliant things in the interests of helping other children.
This book was brilliantly narrated throughout by Walliams himself and a number of other people.
Yes! I could not stop listening!
This is a fantastic book, I am an adult and loved every bit of it. Not to be missed!
