David Walliams s series of children s books keep growing and what I like about them is the focus on familial relationships in the midst of the madcap adventures and irreverent humour The ones about grandparents are especially moving, and this one is in the vein of Gangsta Granny.A tad serious and sobering than that story, we have 12 year old Jack, grappling with his beloved grandpa s developing dementia A World War 2 fly ace with the RAF, Grandpa gets increasingly entrenched in the past, believing the war is still going on, and Jack plays along, to help him cope Together they get into many mis adventures, and Jack fights against all obstacles to try to stop his Grandpa from being sent to an old folks home.While the plot may seem a trifle riotous and at times unbelievable, Jack s love for his Grandpa shines through, and that relationship is central to the entire book Characterisation is consistent and one of Walliams s strong points as a writer is how he makes even the minor characters memorable, and you can imagine them being central characters of a spin off story A case in point is Raj, the gregarious corner store owner, who has appeared in all of the series so far, and wondrously funny. I brought this booklet my 8 year old son He s hit and miss when it comes to reading So whilst waiting for him to start it I thought I d give it a go myself What a cracking story From the outset the story grabs you and you are transported to the boys world You feel the love he feels for his Grandpa and it really does move you in certain parts of the story As a 42 year old man i can heartily recommend this book to anyone looking for a great story Thumbs up Me Walliams. Great book, nice story and as normal a great example of youngsters having a good relationship with their elders I love this book and so does my 8 year old Lots of laughs and we often talk about it when walking to school or eating dinner One of those books which touches your life without you really noticing it My son s gran has Alzheimers so he can identify with the Grandpa and understand her a bit better Thank you David. I bought this book via the warehouse option as it was the only manner of getting the book in hardback for my little guy He loves books and reads them until they literally fall to bits so I try to buy hardback library editions whenever possible The copy I got from the Warehouse was in perfect condition akin to new, and my little boy is thrilled with it I m definitely going to get books from the warehouse option in future, I d be nuts not to. The hotly anticipated next novel from number one best selling author David Walliams, with audio hilariously read by the author himself Jack s Grandpa wears his slippers to the supermarket, serves up Spam la Custard for dinner, and often doesn t remember Jack s name But he can still take to the skies in a speeding Spitfire and save the day An exquisite portrait of the bond between a small boy and his beloved Grandpa this book takes readers on an incredible journey with Spitfires over London and great escapes through the city in a high octane adventure full of comedy and heart
