Best David Walliams book to date

The whole family loved this book for so many reasons. I think it will become a timeless classic. It is extremely funny, not too sad, and not too gruesome. It is perfectly narrated by David Walliams as always. 12 year old artistocrat Stella is left in the care of her Awful Aunt Alberta, when her parents pass away in car accident. All is not as it seems at Saxby Hall, and Aunt Alberta does not have Stella's best interests at heart. The story line is hilarious, even the slightly sad bits, and it was a joy to listen to. There are magical elements in the form of a friendly ghost, which truly made this book special.

Another hilarious, touching David Walliam's book

If you could sum up Awful Auntie in three words, what would they be?

Funny, evil and cruel.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was Gibbons the butler. He is silly in a funny way. My usual in David Walliam's books is Rajah but just you wait and see.....!

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

My favourite character preformed by Walliams is Wagna the owl because it really sounds like there is an owl in your ear!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the part when they planned revenge

Any additional comments?

I had to ration my time listening to the book each evening as I didn't want it to be over too quick! David Walliams is such a brilliant narrator you wouldn't know it was the same person doing the voices. Last bit of book hilarious.
