Book Review: The Boy in the Dress

‘The Boy in the Dress’

by David Walliams

Reviewed by Erica

This book is about a boy called Dennis.  He loves his mum’s dress because it has got flowers all over it.  Dennis and his best friend (Darvesh) love to play football.  Dennis’s mum and dad have separated, so Dennis (and his brother, John) spend most of the time living with their mum.  But every weekend, they always go to their dad’s house so they can see him.  Their dad spends a lot of time watching football.

I would recommend this book for children aged 7 and 8.  I think that there is a book for everyone – you just have to find your favourite author.
