Brilliant

This book is my favourite one so far I was a bit sceptical because I like Roald Dahl as a kid but David Walliams books are adult based as well Being children friendly as well

An excellent family listen

My 7 years old and I absolutely loved this book. Phenomenal performances and background music. Story was thrilling and kept us involved. Especially enjoyed the submarine action. Can’t wait to read/listen more from David Walliams.
