But really, I have been seeing a few reviews saying it is frightning and apparently not sutable for children.

Gangsta Granny went straight to number 1 in the children’s book charts and globally his books have been translated into no fewer than 25 languages. In 2008 David’s first children’s book The Boy in the Dress was published, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

It is in the company of frustratingly ineffective adults and truly perilous situations that Alfie shines in this delightful yet disturbing book. David's books have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim - and both RATBURGER and DEMON DENTIST won the National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.

Walliams has been turning out since 2008, then long may it continue - and long may he reign for giving so much laughter to kids of all ages - even ones like myself in their sixth decade! The dentist is a common phobia amongst children, and the more sensitive might find some of the more nightmarish scenes difficult to take, most notably when Alfie gets all his teeth removed without anaesthetic, his arms and legs held in place with metal cuffs. The book is littered with a colourful cast of characters, from Winnie the large, meddlesome social worker who has a penchant for loud clothing and romps around in a too-small moped; Raj, the neighbourhood newsagent with a timid heart of gold, and the totally guileless policeman, PC Plank. in the children's chart and sold over half a million copies in less than a year, while the PBs of his previous titles dominate the UK charts.

If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance. Tony Ross's illustrations work brilliantly with Walliams's text; there's plenty of fast-paced action; and the jokes are gleefully ghoulish (and often gross). Having started from humble origins, Joe’s father is now a billionaire, and Joe has everything he wants, except true friends. It follows in the vein of Roald Dahl stories, with delightfully quirky illustrations (in the Kindle version, at least), to accompany the at-times alarming story of 12-year old Alfie.So I decided to read his book and I wanna say what I said a million times(probably not) in this review. Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find… a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow.

The illustrations are FABULOUS from Tony Ross - they're SO full of life, enthusiasm, and in tune with each and every character - they could have been drawn by Walliams himself they seem so accurate and authentic to the personalities! This last detail is the basis of the story and it may seem like an inconsequential nugget, but the brilliance of Williams's storycraft is how he manages to create a comedic situation from the rather dire circumstances of Alfie's life by focusing on this one area. This is one of the VERY, VERY ,VERY best and FUNNIEST books I've ever read, and I've been reading a number of books for young adults and children lately, and as I haven't been well, this has been more than a real TONIC for me!The story and narrative kept up its unique style and quality throughout, and towards the end gave that much needed excitement and unpredictability that any really good children's book of today really needs in bucket loads! David began his publishing career at HarperCollins in early 2008 with his debut novel, The Boy in the Dress, followed by Mr Stink in 2009, Billionaire Boy in 2010 and Gangsta Granny in 2011.
