I started off the year with two books by David Walliams and am back to another one because somewhere inside this adult lives an eight-year-old who loves illustrated books.
Join me today as we travel to the Isle of Mulch… This little island is home to a large number of horrible grown-ups. The school, the local park, the toy shop and even the island’s ice-cream van are all run by awful adults who like nothing more than making children miserable. And the island is owned by the most awful one of all – Aunt Greta Greed!
Something needs to be done about them. But is there anyone brave enough?
Meet Ned. Most would say he is an ordinary boy but they would be wrong. Ned isn’t ordinary. He is an extraordinary boy with a special power. SLIMEPOWER!
Walliams brings another fun children’s story set in a strange world. As with all his books, there is an underdog fighting all odds to set things right. What is different here is how he brings in diversity and inclusion as a core theme and executes it brilliantly. Complemented with illustrations by Tony Ross, this is a delightfully comforting read to curl up with when you have a few moments to yourself.
I completed this and I completed reading all the novels of David Walliams . Awesome book . Lacks a bit of emotion but funny and interesting. Anyways , David walliams’ best books in my opinion are midnight gang and mr stink !!
I'm a big kid when it comes to DW books! Every child I know seems to love playing with slime.DW has tapped into their minds and written another brilliantly mad, fun and hilarious story with Ned and Slime!
As with every DW book there is a deeper meaning, a sense of righting a wrong and championing the underdog and why not?! DW is always so on the mark with representation and diversity, he manages to confront issues but in a way children will comprehend and can dream they too can overcome adversity and be the hero of their own story. He also pokes fun at some of his own stereotypes - Raj the newsagent?!
I loved seeing Ned's and Jemima's relationship change as Ned finds his courage and has one heck of an adventure. Jemima becomes a better sister and Slime is well fab! Slime reminded me of a modern-day Mary Poppins (it makes sense when you read it).
The illustrations are fab and I'm looking out for a Walliamson dictionary - Keep up the the good work DW!
The book came quickly, it was gift for my nephew. he is nine so likes this sort of drivel, I suppose I did when I was that age. anyway he apparently is enjoying it and is off the egg box so that, is possibly good.
