    Having read some of this at bedtime to my 11yo, while she read the bulk of it to herself I would say this is a little basic for a year six child who has already ploughed through David Walliams and Roald Dahl, but it s well written, funny, thought provoking and quirky If your 9 or 10 year old wants this to read, I would recommend it.

    My 11 year old son, who is neither an avid reader nor completely reluctant, just can t put this book down I ve heard him laughing about it, he keeps reading snippets to me for appreciation, and is actually worried what he ll do when he s finished it It s the best book he s ever read apparently.

    Really enjoyed this book Burst out laughing and just started reading the next one So says my 10 year old Hysterical laughter is a pretty good sign that it s a good book Recommended.

    12yo son liked it and that s the target audience I found it banal compared with other contemporary fiction for this age group In fact I thought it would suit the 10yo better but he s busy re reading the Harry Potters.
