I've already read a couple of David Walliams' novels in the past, and of course with this being on TV over the Christmas period it was inevitable that I would want to read this book as well. What I find with Walliams' books are that although primarily for children, for adults they still make fun reading and so are more a type of family book, where we can all be entertained. Of course if you are reading this after seeing the TV dramatisation I don't expect you will be surprised that you find this very slightly different. The main story is the same, but there were a few comic pieces added that don't appear in the book.

Dennis is a normal seeming twelve year old boy. He lives with his older brother and father, as their mother walked out a couple of years before. Dennis does have one extraordinary secret though, and that is that he does like looking at women's fashions. Nothing would have gone any further than that until he becomes friends with Lisa, a slightly older schoolgirl. And so for Dennis his life is about to enter a new and challenging path, as he actually tries on dresses, and becomes his alter ego, Denise, and even plays the girl at school.

This is a fun and comic tale, but it does have a more sensitive and thoughtful side to it. As Dennis gets into troubles and problems this story helps to remind us all that we are not all the same, and we must show tolerance for others. What will happen to Dennis here, and more importantly what will happen with the football match which could give his school team a chance of glory?

So, in all this is well worth reading whatever age you are at, from nine years and older, after all what could be more interesting than football and cross-dressing?

I am 8 years old and I think that you should read this book because It has things that most people like in books.
It is funny, sad and happy at different parts of the book. It has pictures in some places of the book so if you don't get it you can rely on the pictures to help you. It is worth reading.

I am eight years old and I really liked this book because it is funny and not like anything I have ever read before. The characters are brilliant. I like Lisa, Darvesh's mum and best of all, Dennis. I think that a boy dressing up as a french girl is a very funny idea. I would like to buy this book for all my friends at Christmas, boys and girls.

the porn mag content. My 8 yr old daughter loved the first Walliams book she read, so we got her this one. I was disappointed to find myself having to explain what a porn magazine is. It goes on to say the father hides his, and the older brother takes them. If she had spotted one in a shop and asked, then fair enough, but to find it in a children's' book was not appropriate. I've given this three stars for this reason. Apart from that it's a great book, well-written, funny and greatly enjoyed.

So funny I found myself laughing out loud when I read it. Kept sniggering for days after. Bought for my grandson but I enjoyed it as much as him.

I have to say that I throughly enjoyed this book. Walliams has come up with something different and challenging for young readers and i think it is very important to applaud this. It is not often that you come across a big name children's book that deals with issues outside of normative girl/ boy roles. I found myself involved in and moved by this book and my cousin (who I read the book with) certainly agrees with me! If you're looking for the kind of book that sends out positive messages about diversity and acceptance without it coming off as a lesson or a lecture, then this really is a kids book worth taking a look at.

David Walliams is fantastic. My daughter has always enjoyed reading, but she now has Mr Stink, The Billionaire boy and The boy in the dress. She now cant wait to get her hands on the next book. David Walliams captures the excitement in these books and gets children's minds thinking and imagining. By far the best author that has been around for some time

I have never given a thought to David Walliams as a childrens writer, he certainly has the gift of being able to make children laugh out loud. My grandchildren were delighted and we will certainly be looking out for more.
