Kids laughing out loud!

Bought this as something for my son (just 7) and daughter (just 5) to listen to on the plane/by the beach. Although I haven't listened to it personally, the children LOVED it. My son was asking to listen to this rather than go in the pool or on the beach! They both laughed out loud. If they're happy, I'm happy.

The less liked of David Walliams books, so far.

It's nicely narrated as the other stories that we have listened to from the same author. Nevertheless we didn't finish listening to it because we didn't find the short stories interesting. They didn't capture our imagination (mine and my 11 year old boy). We didn't find it funny either (and we had laughed or giggled with some other of his books).
