I think 'this book is perfect for 7 onwards. I don't think children under the age of 7 or 6 should listen to this book as there is quite a bit of violence with guns.But overall this audible book is AMAZING!!!!!! 😜😁

The brilliant follow-up to David Walliams' best seller The World's Worst Children! Ten more stories about a brand-new gang of hilariously horrible kids from everyone's favourite children's author. If you thought you had heard about the world's worst children already, you're in for a rather nasty shock. The beastly boys and gruesome girls in this book are even ruder, even more disgusting and WORSE than you could ever imagine!

Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More, read by Andrew Scott. Roald Dahl turns his pen to anything, twisting everyday life into powerful and sometimes terrifying fantasies. Seven superb stories, full of Roald Dahl's usual magic, mystery and suspense: meet the boy who can talk to animals and the man who can see with his eyes closed, and find out about the treasure buried deep underground on Thistley Green.

Every thing in this book is amazing. The only downside is that when the black man ( in The Wonderful Story Of Henry Sugar ) starts to tell his life story. I think it is simply too long of a story.
I recommend this book for children aged 5/6-12 .

The new heartwarming and hilariously brilliant story, beautifully read by number one best-selling author David Walliams. Dads come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. There are fat ones and thin ones, tall ones and short ones. There are young ones and old ones, clever ones and stupid ones. There are silly ones and serious ones, loud ones and quiet ones. Of course, there are good dads and bad dads.... A high-speed cops and robbers adventure with heart and soul about a father and son taking on the villainous Mr Big - and winning!

Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact. You see, Joe's rich. Really, really rich. Joe's got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orangutan. He's the wealthiest 12-year-old in the land. But Joe isn't happy. Why not? Because he's got a billion pounds...and not a single friend. But then someone comes along, someone who likes Joe for Joe, not for his money. The problem is, Joe's about to learn that when money is involved, nothing is what it seems.
