Product description

Review

PRAISE FOR DAVID WALLIAMS:
“A pleasure to read. A beguilingly funny, original and thought-provoking tale… hilarious” Amanda Craig, The Times

“I absolutely love David Walliams's books. In a few more years they will become classics.” – Sue Townsend, author of Adrian Mole, Guardian

"A triumphant mix of wit and warmth" – Telegraph Books of the Year

"Another triumph for David Walliams. His books are a breath of wonderful fresh air" – Sun

From the Inside Flap

A page-turning, rollicking romp of a read, sparkling with Walliams' most eccentric characters yet and full of humour and heart. From larger than life, tiddlywinks obsessed Awful Aunt Alberta to her pet owl, Wagner - this is an adventure with a difference.

Aunt Alberta is on a mission to cheat the young Lady Stella Saxby out of her inheritance - Saxby Hall. But with mischievous and irrepressible Soot, the cockney ghost of a chimney sweep, alongside her Stella is determined to fight back... And sometimes a special friend, however different, is all you need to win through.

This is Walliams's seventh children's novel, and not since Roald Dahl has there been another children's author who had so successfully pushed the boundaries of children's fiction, laced with just the right amount of the macabre and uncomfortable truths, laced with the kind of riproaring humour that most children would be delighted at.

While the previous novel "Demon Dentist" featured an underprivileged boy, Alfie, who has to fend not only for himself but an inept parent, "Awful Auntie" is about a rich little girl Stella, who is Lady Saxby in waiting. Her aunt Alberta, with her faithful sidekick, Wagner the Great Bavarian Mountain Owl, is a straightforward villainous character who would stop at nothing to wrest Stella's fortunes from her. And Stella, for all her privilege, is an authentic preteen who finds the forces she has to fight are way bigger than her, made worse by the fact that they come from within her own cavernous home, Saxby Hall.

This book is a little short on characters and the nuanced relationships in the above mentioned last book, especially seen in the father-son duo, Alfie and his dad. In this novel, Stella is quite alone in her predicament, save for the supernatural realm. Nonetheless the way she fights and outwits her treacherous aunt is both exhilarating and funny. Walliams has under his belt a winning formula in children's fiction which should see his set of books becoming modern day children's classics.

Bought this book as I've heard good things about David Walliams children's books. Suffice to say the birthday girl loved this book and gangster granny she read them in a matter of a few weeks. I am now going to purchase her some more of the books and keep her happy she chose Demon Dentist and Ratburger as her next choices. I would highly recommend these stories for young children. I bought them for a 10 year old and she loves them. EDIT I bought a used hardback copy but it came with no dust jacket and wasn't in very good condition I'm going to donate it to charity as it's not in acceptable condition as a gift for a young boy.

By nevan
This is a shockingly brilliant read ,there are clever twists and cliff hanging chapter endings . The characters are great, I particularly enjoyed the awful aunt and her despicable evilness. I think that Walliams is an a amazing authour. I think his imaginative ideas are un- matched and his humour keeps you reading . So sit uncomfortable and read Awful Auntie .
