Synopsis

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.

I usually like David Walliam's books, but I thought this one was a bit boring. The just didn't grab me and it wasn't funny.

What i think
June 6th, 2014
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

This is the best book Walliams has written! It's more interesting and not as sad as his other books. You should definitely read this! :-D

This book by David Williams was amazing. I loved the part where Dennis went to school as Denise. I also liked the part where Dennis' dad watched him play football:-)
