this book was ok. but can nobody else see the extreme simalarities between this book and one of walliam's first books, "gansta granny"? when i first picked up this book, i wanted it to be really different from walliam's usual, repetitive style of writing. but unfortunately, it wasn't. his writing style is now becoming predictable and repetative. a young child, probably about 9-12, along with a single parent. after the first page, you can predict the rest unaided.
