I did an internship in a school in England (before Corona sent me back to Germany) and all the kids were reading David Walliams. And so begins a funny and heartwarming story of a very unusual friendship – and some very strange animals.

I was there on World Book Day and at least 50% came as some character form The Midnight Gang (which is so clever because you get to go to school on your pyjamas), so I felt like I needed to read something from him to understand the YOUTH. I love books with animals anyway (I prefer the company of animals to people) and so it was nice to see some of the more unuusual, not oft-mentioned animals on display here (or at least I haven't read many books that actually mention such things as aye-ayes and pangolins and snapping turtles among others. As I paid a fair bit more than that, it was disappointing to see the cover has a massive crease down the middle of it and the condition is not as good as I would have expected.Bob found out some animals at the zoo are unique and not alike and they have no one to visit them but others bully them too so bob made these animals be proud of who they are by accepting what they have.

Willybums knows how to make this 24-year-old kid snort, chuckle and giggle with his take on the zoo and school bullies.

It’s a very similar writing style to Roald Dahl and the way it uses fonts and sizes is like Lauren Child. Bob is now happy as he has many friends including the unique animals and zoo keeper owner and zoo keeper worker as his friends and a lifetime of free zoo tickets for him to use.

This book was written for World Book Day 2017 and is by one of my favourite authors - David Walliams.

I can't say I'm as keen as they were but then I'm not the target audience and just comparing it to other children's stories that I've read them.

It was a major bonus that it was centered around a zoo too, which of course I loved, but with that setting, Walliams was also able to get the message out of not being cruel to animals (as well as each other), and the power of breaking down bullying was a strong theme. Roald Dahl is amazing, legend, one of a kind but David's books are genuinely good, kind, honest and most importantly wise. All in all, this was such great fun and I'm very much looking forward to reading more of David Walliams' books.

I have just finished reading Blob to my six year old and have given it 5 stars as he scored it 5 and a half! The twist is that it's presented from not only a little boy's perspective but also those of some animals SOME people might consider "ugly. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. This is such a heart-warming story that revolves around a ten-year-old boy named Bob who lives with his poor grandpa. I think one of the best things in the world is listening to your child trying to read something but there in fits of giggles.A blob fish - maybe it has a tad bit of a good message, about how you look not mattering- but it is awful.
