Les informations fournies dans la section « Synopsis » peuvent faire référence à une autre édition de ce titre.
PRAISE IN THE USA FOR GRANDPA’S GREAT ESCAPE: “A realistic and touching relationship. Ample illustrations from the always splendid Ross will keep the pages in this plump volume turning. A Dahl-esque tale.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“While the irreverent wit will keep readers engaged, the surprising tenderness in the relationship between Jack and his ailing grandfather is what makes this book truly shine. A darkly humorous tale with a surprising amount of heart.” (School Library Journal)
“Walliams gives Grandpa-and [his] Spitfire-a grand send-off. A pleaser for fans of similar escapades engineered by the likes of Roald Dahl or Frank Cotrell-Boyce.” (ALA Booklist)
“Ross’s energetic drawings and some playful use of typography bring additional drama and humor to the story. The story’s comedy is nicely counterbalanced by the poignant bond between Jack and Grandpa.” (Publishers Weekly)
PRAISE IN THE USA FOR DEMON DENTIST: “A Brit-flavored romp that combines moments of intense terror and bracing courage with biting satire.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“A Dahl-esque mix of humor and horror that will appeal to fans of both.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
“A goofy, gory, outlandish tale of deep evil and terrible tooth-rot-and sweetness of heart. Kids who enjoy humorous gross-out horror will definitely want to book an appointment of their own with the Demon Dentist.” (Wall Street Journal)
“Dahl-esque in the extreme...Frenetic humor for middle grade fans of the funny and fearsome.” (School Library Journal)
UK PRAISE FOR DAVID WALLIAMS: “No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is the heir to Roald Dahl-and that’s saying a lot.” (The Spectator)
“Walliams’s books will become classics.” (The Guardian)
Since 2008 David Walliams has taken the children’s literary world by storm. His bestselling eight novels have been translated into over forty languages and have sold over eight million copies in the UK alone. Walliams’ books have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim and countless broadsheet reviewers have compared him to his all-time hero, Roald Dahl. Born in London, Tony Ross went to art school in Liverpool. His cartoons have appeared in famous publications the world over. His first book, HUGO AND THE WICKED WINTER, was published in 1972. Tony has since written over 100 books and illustrated over 2000! His creations Towser and The Little Princess have been turned into TV series. David and Tony have worked on four Number One bestselling picture books together, as well as six of David’s phenomenally successful children’s novels – Billionaire Boy, Gangsta Granny, Ratburger, Demon Dentist, Awful Auntie and Grandpa’s Great Escape.
