best story ever

I am only nine and I loved it so so much. I think people can wear any thing they want without being made fun of. I really really loved this story. I personally hate dresses and I am a girl; all I wear is shorts, leggings and tops.

👍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I thought this book was really good 😊. It's great how it shows you that you don't have time a boy to be into fashion . This was one of the best books David has written.

Very pleasantly surprised

What made the experience of listening to The Boy in the Dress the most enjoyable?

I have to say David Walliams is a great narrator and made this story very enjoyable.

Have you listened to any of David Walliams and Matt Lucas ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it kept you listening.

Any additional comments?

This was a good book and I have just purchased David Walliams other books I am sure they will be equally as good.

Boringly fatphobic

I'm just sick of books that set up fat people as the villains or persistently associate fatness with negative personal traits or immorality, ranging from sloppy dressing through laziness, to downright malevolence. We turned this book off pretty quickly once we realised Walliams was going to be making endless mileage out of the lead character's fat father. It's a boring and unimaginative way to get your laughs, and also unkind. Not into it. Next!
