David and Tony also collaborated on the 2017 World Book Day title, BLOB, and on the blockbuster collections, The World’s Worst Children 1, 2 and 3. It’s a very similar writing style to Roald Dahl and the way it uses fonts and sizes is like Lauren Child. Walliams succeeds at promoting self-love among blobfish who is considered to be the ugliest (according to The WHOPPING Book of Fish), terrifying komodo dragon, incredibly slow sloth, proboscis monkey with his outrageous hooter, spiky-backed echidna, pig-nosed frog, umbrellabird with his long dangly wattle that looks like a folded-up umbrella, star-nosed mole who looks like he has worms on the end of his face, hamadryas baboon with her matching red face and bottom, hooded seal who can blow his nose like a ballon and many more through Bob — it's a marvelous thing!

All the characters and animals in this story were great Arons favourite was blob my favourite was Mr Basil Basildon. There are lots of fascinating animals included as well, both familiar and rarely heard of, and the illustrations are lovely. I was there on World Book Day and at least 50% came as some character form The Midnight Gang (which is so clever because you get to go to school on your pyjamas), so I felt like I needed to read something from him to understand the YOUTH. Since August 2013, he has written and starred in the BBC One sitcom Big School playing chemistry teacher Keith Church. I love books with animals anyway (I prefer the company of animals to people) and so it was nice to see some of the more unuusual, not oft-mentioned animals on display here (or at least I haven't read many books that actually mention such things as aye-ayes and pangolins and snapping turtles among others.It was a major bonus that it was centered around a zoo too, which of course I loved, but with that setting, Walliams was also able to get the message out of not being cruel to animals (as well as each other), and the power of breaking down bullying was a strong theme. As I paid a fair bit more than that, it was disappointing to see the cover has a massive crease down the middle of it and the condition is not as good as I would have expected.

His debut children's novel, The Boy in the Dress, was published in 2008 to unanimous critical acclaim and he has since developed a reputation as a natural successor to Roald Dahl. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. David and Tony have worked on six bestselling picture books together, and nine of David’s phenomenally successful children’s novels.

And so begins a funny and heartwarming story of a very unusual friendship – and some very strange animals. All in all, this was such great fun and I'm very much looking forward to reading more of David Walliams' books.
