While we have enjoyed other David Walliams books such as Gangsta Granny, Mr Stink and The Midnight Gang we found that Awful Auntie along with Demon Dentist are our favourites. It is packed with great descriptions like Stella's scream in terror when Stella met Soot. David Walliam's character descriptions are awesome and we really like Soot and all of the other characters. In this book Stella had to solve the mystery of her parents' death as well escaping from Awful Auntie. Tony Ross pictures' looked old fashioned and added to the story. We love the way that David Walliams added Gibbon to the story to make it funnier. Saxby Hall was a great setting for the story because it's a mansion with lots of rooms and grounds. This book is suitable for boys and girls aged 8 and upwards. Younger children might get scared or not understand.
He read quickly but it is emotional and little bit scary book. In starting it shows my son was upset and emotional when Stellas parents died and auntie puts her in cellar..
David Williams books are mostly depends on imaginary stories. Whenever kids start reading his books the take a lot interst and finished very quickly.
In this book his illustrate Tiny Ross did well. Some books has movies as well so kids enjoyed a lot if they already read so my son asked if this story book movie released.
David William books are worthy, not only kids enjoyed elders as well.
