Ill. by Quentin Blake and Tony Ross. HarperCollins, 2018. ISBN 9780008293253
(Age: 7+) Highly recommended. Themes: Humour, Puzzles. Designed especially for children who can't get enough of David Walliams weird and hilarious humour and illustrated by two outstanding illustrators, "The world of David Walliams Book of stuff" will bring hours of fun and laughter into the lives of those who read it. Even people who aren't familiar with Walliam's books will be delighted with the fun in the book and are sure to want to pick up one of his stories or watch a film based on his books.
There are also puzzles to solve, like finding the 14 differences in the two pictures of Walliams' writing shed or designing a Walliams book cover. Readers will meet Raj in a new adventure and find out about the author's interest in swimming and his acting in "Billionaire Boy", "Ratburger" and "Grandma's great escape".
The illustrations by Blake and Ross enhance the book and will have readers laughing out loud as they read "Leonard Spud's guide to loo-modelling" or "Mummy's tooth care range" as well as many other very funny articles and cartoons.
This is a must for all Walliams' fans and is sure to keep the whole family chortling during the holidays with its funny jokes and slightly rude content.
