I am a huge fan of David Walliams and have already read about 5 books of his, with a few more on my bookcase ready to read.
This is a book about, well I don’t think I really need to explain this as you probably already know. There are 4 main characters in this book, Frank a young boy, Auntie Flip who babysits Frank sometimes, Rita who is his mum and Gilbert who is his dad. As like every other book of David Walliams
there is of course Raj the newsagent from the corner shop which is not that far from Franks house.
Frank’s dad was a banger racer and had a really bad accident on the race track and unfortunately lost one of his legs. Not just that he also lost his wife, money and everything that belonged to him that was in the flat, including their TV. Frank had a racing track that he used to play with, (with his dad) after the accident and that also got taken away. They had nothing to sit on or do and the only thing that was left was cups.
After the first few pages of Bad Dad I did not want to put the book down. I feel like if I told you any more I would spoil the rest of the story, and as my mum says “You’ll just have to buy the book and read it yourself.”
It was absolutely amazing and read when I could. I felt like I didn’t want to stop reading and would sulk when I had to stop, which was when my mum and dad told me I had to go to bed. 😊
I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to children my age (I am 10 years old). After I had finished the book I went to my mum and said “I think you need to read this one. It is really funny and I know you sometimes read funny books.”
I enjoyed this just as much as the other ones I have read.
She is a massive fan of David Walliams books, with great story lines and imaginative writing, and this did not disappoint. If you love Roald Dahl then Walliams is a modern day equivalent.
Overall I would recommend this to young and old, or anyone who just wants a good read.
In terms of the product, it was delivered promptly just in time for her birthday. And the hardcover finish on the book is nice.
Definitely recommend this for young readers.
