The author has overlooked the fact that several of the worst-children-ever reside in MY house. In those rare cases that these children bother to look up from their Ipads they refer to me as ‘dad’, usually followed by a demand for money or sweets.
So the book is incomplete at a minimum.
Take for example Juliet-the-Sloth; she leaves her rubbish everywhere throughout the house. Her clothes lie scattered on the floor and hallway for days. She bites nails, only brushes here teeth under immense pressure or in exceptional circumstances. And is happy to go without a shower for days in a row.
And why didn’t the book dedicate a chapter to Jonathan-the-wisecrack? – an annoying little chap that claims to know more about his favourite subjects (dinosaurs and Star Wars) than anyone else, he endlessly chats about these topics until your ears drop off. Worse, he is full of awful jokes; tends to run up to adults, grab them tightly and .. starts farting loudly.
So I got some first-hand experience with terrible cases myself. And I can tell you it’s not easy and very demanding. I'll be open to an interview with Mr Walliams when he is conducting research for his next book on this topic.
