Description

I loved some of the comedy strip style in this one and whilst there was some scatalogical humour, (which I personally can't stand) there was less of it in this book. Their fight against despicable characters like the Masked Honker who farts deadly fire, Dr Stench who has bad breath as a weapon, the Ice Queen who can turn you to ice with the touch of a single finger, and the two-headed ogre whose heads are constantly in disagreement, will take them from the underground sewers to outer space, and all the way back. On top of that, during the second half of this book the narrative split into two and we were jumping back and forth between two storylines and two sets of characters which felt disconnected and at times really annoying.

Supercharged and ready for action and adventure, can Robodog stop the most feared criminal duo in Bedlam and thwart their evil plans to destroy the city? David Walliams is a literary phenomenon whose books have sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and have been translated into fifty-five languages. The action begins early, even if it’s slapstick and silly, the tension builds as Robodog chases villains, supervillains are chasing dogs, and the Chief and her wife the Professor are caught up in the middle. The chief decides she wants a dog that can do every task which leads to the professor creating a "Robodog" out of old washing machine parts, kinda like Frankenstein's monster.If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance. His debut children's novel, The Boy in the Dress, was published in 2008 to unanimous critical acclaim and he has since developed a reputation as a natural successor to Roald Dahl. He took up swimming in his youth because he was overweight, and has subsequently completed long distance swims of the English Channel, the Strait of Gibraltar and the River Thames, raising millions of pounds for charity! David Walliams is a very popular children's author in the UK but I've been avoiding his much-lauded books because a) I've never found his brand of humour particularly funny, and b) I read his picture book The Slightly Annoying Elephant to my kids and none of us rated it. Personally, I think I preferred Tony Ross's illustrations over Adam Stower's but he still captured the essence.

I loved that Plank was so silly, I think if Plank could get a medal for anything it would be for being silly. I have a few ideas on why this book didn’t work for me but it genuinely surprised me that I didn’t love this book. All of these elements are perfect for Middle-Grade readers and entertaining for us older readers as well. There is a billion dollar robbery to be foiled, where only a rat who swears he’s a mouse can save the day.
