Reviews

"While the irreverent wit will keep readers engaged, the surprising tenderness in the relationship between Jack and his ailing grandfather is what makes this book truly shine. A darkly humorous tale with a surprising amount of heart."--School Library Journal
"A Dahl-esque mix of humor and horror that will appeal to fans of both."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Dahl-esque in the extreme...Frenetic humor for middle grade fans of the funny and fearsome."--School Library Journal
"Unlike other celebrity authors, Walliams can write; his energetic fairytale will be relished."--The Times (UK)
"A triumphant mix of wit and warmth."--Telegraph (UK)
PRAISE IN THE USA FOR GRANDPA'S GREAT ESCAPE: "A realistic and touching relationship. Ample illustrations from the always splendid Ross will keep the pages in this plump volume turning. A Dahl-esque tale."--Kirkus Reviews
"Walliams gives Grandpa-and [his] Spitfire-a grand send-off. A pleaser for fans of similar escapades engineered by the likes of Roald Dahl or Frank Cotrell-Boyce."--ALA Booklist
"Ross's energetic drawings and some playful use of typography bring additional drama and humor to the story. The story's comedy is nicely counterbalanced by the poignant bond between Jack and Grandpa."--Publishers Weekly
PRAISE IN THE USA FOR DEMON DENTIST: "A Brit-flavored romp that combines moments of intense terror and bracing courage with biting satire."--Kirkus Reviews
"A goofy, gory, outlandish tale of deep evil and terrible tooth-rot-and sweetness of heart. Kids who enjoy humorous gross-out horror will definitely want to book an appointment of their own with the Demon Dentist."--Wall Street Journal
UK PRAISE FOR DAVID WALLIAMS: "No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is the heir to Roald Dahl-and that's saying a lot."--The Spectator
"Walliams's books will become classics."--The Guardian
"The joy of David's books are that he completely understands how children think and feel and is never ever patronising."--The Sun (UK)
"Further proof that Walliams has become a master storyteller. Walliams manages to infuse his novels with genuine wit and sly commentary."--Heat Magazine
"Comedian David Walliams has taken the publishing world by storm."--Metro
