BOOK OF THE WEEK!!!

 

Awful Auntie by David Walliams

 

Paperback:            416 pages

Age Range:           9 – 12 years

Publisher:              HarperCollinsChildren’sBooks

 

I have to say if you are adult or child or anything in between and want a good book that is a great laugh but keeps you on the hedge of your seat, this book is your man. Or should I say book.

From number one bestselling author David Walliams comes another heartfelt but hilarious hoot of an adventure

Stella Saxby is the sole heir to Saxby Hall. But awful Aunt Alberta and her giant owl will stop at nothing to get it from her. Luckily Stella has a secret – and slightly spooky – weapon up her sleeve…

There really are auntie’s like Aunt Stella Saxby. Do you have an auntie like her? You need to read the book and make comparisons.
