His books have now been translated into 40+ languages, and also include picture books illustrated by Tony Ross.

As much as I agree this is wholesome and sweet , it doesn’t have the charm of his initial books , I’ve already noticed a shift in the writing style and the illustrator , but I wanted to complete all of his work , atleast at the time I discovered him and I’m glad it’s all off my tbr. These thugs are captained by the dastardly duo, Mighty Mind, a giant criminal mega-brain living in a fishbowl on wheels, and his henchperson, Hammerhands, a terrifying woman with hammers instead of hands.

The city of Bedlam is desperate; the streets are rat-infested and filthy; the buildings dilapidated, and, worst of all, the inhabitants are ruled by super villains of the underworld. I loved some of the comedy strip style in this one and whilst there was some scatalogical humour, (which I personally can't stand) there was less of it in this book. To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. Since I am not the target audience for this book, I don’t think my issues with it will affect young readers as there are so many crazy elements to this story for them to love.

This robotic hero has the strength of a German shepherd, can follow a scent like a bloodhound, barks louder than a spaniel, has the speed of a greyhound, the pride of a terrier, the bravery of a schnauzer and is as keen nosed as a beagle. These baddies include Velma, the chief and professor's cat; mighty mind, the master mind who is just a mega-brain floating in a fish bowl and is behind the notorious robberies in the city of Bedlam; and Hammerheads, mighty mind's henchperson who lost her hands and uses a hammer on each side as a replacement for her hands.

Unlike Walliams's other works, this was presented as a combination of a comic strip and his trademark style. Adam Stower is an author and illustrator, who has collaborated with David Walliams on several of his books for children.Their fight against despicable characters like the Masked Honker who farts deadly fire, Dr Stench who has bad breath as a weapon, the Ice Queen who can turn you to ice with the touch of a single finger, and the two-headed ogre whose heads are constantly in disagreement, will take them from the underground sewers to outer space, and all the way back. I love that the Professor and the Chief were married because the people in the books I have read who have been married to each other have been husband and wife, so it was fun to read about a wife and a wife.

I love this book, really funny and gripping storyline, I’m a big fan of David Walliams’ books, I have all of David’s other books, so I’m so glad to add this one to my collection! Personally, I think I preferred Tony Ross's illustrations over Adam Stower's but he still captured the essence. The characters are flat and talk a lot but nothing happens, apart from things getting damaged and making sounds.

I loved that Plank was so silly, I think if Plank could get a medal for anything it would be for being silly. Given how much enjoyment I got from the illustrations I can only imagine how much young readers are going to love them. I thought Mighty Mind, Hammerhands, The Chocolatier, The Headmistress and The Politician were all great baddies.
