The Beast of Buckingham Palace: The epic new children’s book from multi-million bestselling author David Walliams
About this deal
While I could read Billionaire Boy or Boy in the Dress again and again, this one isn't likely to be repeated on our school runs.

I like that David intersperses real history and mythology into the story including our recent history as ancient history (the story is set in the future) so has some small educational value. Back to this, maybe if I was 8 or 9 I would like it more, but I am a reader who likes to read a book, this is more like half children book and half comic. Remind yourselves of Prince Alfred, his new friend Mite, the King and Queen and all the hilarious characters from David’s epic adventure now!Tony Ross' amazing illustrations completely enhance this wonderful book and perfectly capture the heart and soul of David Walliams' story. I would recommend for 7-11 year olds, heartily, and will look forward to a future Christmas TV adaptation.
I’m sure many children will love this book but I just felt there were the foundations of so much more there. As an adult, I didn't particularly enjoy this, but listening as someone who needs to be aware of children's tastes and trends, I can't see this making waves as Walliams' comic efforts have done.Taj neverovatni duo, književni tandem koji zaista, doslovno otelotvoruje magiju - Dejvid Valijams (pisac) i Toni Ros (tvorac fantastičnih ilustracija koje bogate Valijamsove knjige) ima tu neobičnu sposobnost, tu veštinu da vas uvuče, infiltrira u svet koji stvara tako da vi nemate ni najmanju želju da se iz njega izvučete.
