Summary

The new children’s book from number one best-selling author David Walliams - a deliciously daft Tall Story of a child who had everything but still wanted more. 

Meet the Meeks!

Myrtle Meek has everything she could possibly want. But everything isn’t enough. She wants more, more, MORE! When Myrtle declares she wants a FING, there’s only one problem.... What is a FING?

Mr and Mrs Meek will do anything to keep their darling daughter happy, even visit the spooky library vaults to delve into the dusty pages of the mysterious Monsterpedia. Their desperate quest leads to the depths of the jungliest jungle where the rarest creatures can be found. But will they ever find a FING?

An explosively funny, totally surreal Tall Story about two perfectly nice parents and their unbelievably monstrous daughter from the phenomenal best-selling author David Walliams.

Not my favourite

I did like this story because it was funny and made me laugh, but it wasn’t really my type of story. I liked some of his other books more than this. Mia age 9

My kids don’t like it

My 9 yrs old and 7 yrs old couldn’t go through first chapter. They were surprised how mean the girl was and that nobody reacted to her behavior. I was surprised that they didn’t find it funny, but simply were upset. We didn’t enjoy thsi book.

A silly book from the world's best author

Very funny an alphabet of stuff!! I especially loved that I grab on to my mum's finger and sing, oh oh the fing has got your finger, the fing has got your finger dinger linger hinger oh oh oh, that was what I sang when fing grabbed on to Mr Meeks finger. Incorrect spelling for thing pfffffft. Are these real creatures? I think he made the creatures, the monsterpedia and the deepest darkest jungliest jungle up. How dare me!!🤣😏🙉💩 Now he will kill me! Please, no you are the best author ever!!

Gross!

This was a major disappointment. I regret buying it. I have lived some of the others by Walliams, but this one was not something I wanted to listen to with my daughter.

Not great

Not a great book I'd spend my money on demon dentist or ice monster or something like that over this book
