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.
