The fifth screamingly funny novel from David Walliams, number one bestseller and fastest growing children’s author in the country.

Her stepmother Sheila is so lazy she gets Zoe to pick her nose for her. The school bully Tina Trotts makes her life a misery – mainly by flobbing on her head. And now the evil Burt from Burt’s Burgers is after her pet rat! And guess what he wants to do with it? The clue is in the title…
Review by Tiffany:
I’m one of those Teenagers that absolutely hates reading and only reads if they have to, but when I got given this book to review I was shocked at how quickly I got into the book.
I usually stop because I find books really boring but this one just intrigued me, it is both a happy and sad book and does make you laugh but it is a fantastic book the way it has been written is great. It reminded me of Roald Dahl which are the only books I have read cover to cover and of course this one. The illustrations are also really good adding an extra feel to the book and makes interesting for children. I have to say this book is possibly one of the best books I have read and I cannot wait to read the rest of his books. Definitely 5 out of 5
