About this deal

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. Trying to be funny is one thing, when it works, but this just feels like someone is trying to hard to make sure people laugh, trying to insert any silly situation or puns.

The word play is gone, revolting foods (apart from the owl's), authorial interjections and footnotes, it actually had me puzzled. Awful Auntie is awful when it comes to Aunt Alberta, she is so creepy and dark in plotting awful ambushes. And, there are also lists, pages and pages of lists: ways Aunt Alberta was mean to Stella's father, things Great Bavarian Mountain Owls can do, different types of owls, different types of pranks, etc.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. Tante Alberta, og hennes nærmeste fortrolige, uglen Wagner, vil ikke godta denne arverekken, og gjør alt de kan for å slå kloa i herregården. De som har lest Roald Dahl kjenner igjen både tegningene (en skulle tro det var Quentin Blake, og ikke Tony Ross som har illustrert) og humor/satiren Walliams bruker.

Soot was an interesting character, though I knew what he was, his role and everything else, from the start.K. Rowling has done, this generation are enjoying their books and hopefully spring-boarding to other authors and titles that will fire their imaginations. Dette gjør at sidetallet blir høyere men samtidig så flyger boka av sted, og jeg føler at illustrasjonene gjør historien bedre.

Also featured are Wagner (Aunt Alberta's enormous owl that was found in a war), Soot (a ghost of a chimney sweep) and Gibbon (the Saxby's elderly butler who offers much comic relief).Even though generally David Walliams books are hit and miss, I just keep reading them, hoping to find another one that is good. Meni je ovo bilo zanimljivo čitati, i jednostavno nisam mogla odoljeti, jer Walliamsa obožavam još od doba Little Britaina, na koje dijelovi romana uvelike podsjećaju, što mi je bilo fantastično! Putea să se termine mai repejor, căci partea finală (gen action movie) dă senzația că autorul e plătit la pagină.
