About this deal

And so begins a funny and heartwarming story of a very unusual friendship – and some very strange animals.

It isn't a book, a story, it's a short story, it seems like people are making movies out of David's books just because he is famous, not for any(or lack of) plot. His debut children's novel, The Boy in the Dress, was published in 2008 to unanimous critical acclaim and he has since developed a reputation as a natural successor to Roald Dahl.If you make fun of yourself to make others laugh more with you, rather than at you, are you still not making people laugh at your expense? All in all, this was such great fun and I'm very much looking forward to reading more of David Walliams' books. Since August 2013, he has written and starred in the BBC One sitcom Big School playing chemistry teacher Keith Church.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The zookeeper and Winston helps bob by pulling a prank/revenge scheme on the bullies who bully Bob which makes them leave him alone.He is an English comedian, actor, author, television presenter and activist, best known for his partnership with Matt Lucas on the BBC One sketch shows Little Britain, Rock Profile and Come Fly with Me. I can't say I'm as keen as they were but then I'm not the target audience and just comparing it to other children's stories that I've read them. except maybe the introduction--Mr Willybum :P Mostly it's just making you smile or chuck instead of laugh out loud.

It was a major bonus that it was centered around a zoo too, which of course I loved, but with that setting, Walliams was also able to get the message out of not being cruel to animals (as well as each other), and the power of breaking down bullying was a strong theme. Blob' is short and sweet and has the same sort of charm that Dahl's children books have, with well carved and ridiculous characters. I have just finished reading Blob to my six year old and have given it 5 stars as he scored it 5 and a half! This book was written for World Book Day 2017 and is by one of my favourite authors - David Walliams.

I was there on World Book Day and at least 50% came as some character form The Midnight Gang (which is so clever because you get to go to school on your pyjamas), so I felt like I needed to read something from him to understand the YOUTH. Willybums knows how to make this 24-year-old kid snort, chuckle and giggle with his take on the zoo and school bullies. By the end of 2014, Walliams had sold over 4 million books and is described as "the fastest growing children's author in the UK. All the characters and animals in this story were great Arons favourite was blob my favourite was Mr Basil Basildon. The twist is that it's presented from not only a little boy's perspective but also those of some animals SOME people might consider "ugly.
