Guardian Review

Philip Ardagh is fairly impressed by David Walliams' first children's book, The Boy In The Dress


Blake's illustrations not only give this story that extra dimension - something that Walliams is quick to acknowledge in his "thank yous" - but also instant credentials. Even without them, though, The Boy in the Dress would stand very nicely on its own two (high-heeled) feet.

I hope Walliams writes more for children. But I end with a word of warning: don't remove the book's jacket until you've read the story. Blake's pictures underneath give much of the game away. See? It's all a matter of what you wear and when.
