The sparkling debut children’s novel from David Walliams, number one bestseller and fastest growing children’s author in the country. Illustrated by Quentin Blake and brilliantly written by David Walliams, The Boy in the Dress is full of the sharp humour and vivid characters you would expect from the co-creator and co-star of Little Britain. It is also a timeless and hilarious fable about what happens when an ordinary boy does something extraordinary – and the way that people, even the petty and cruel, can surprise you in the end. Quentin's illustrious black and white drawings are interspersed throughout, forming a perfect accompaniment to this funny and touching story.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What i think I thought it was nice because Dennis won the school match but then it was sad because Dennis mum died and he got suspended from the school. That is what I think about The Boy In The Dress
