But then I learned the truth: Ahmet really isn’t very strange at all. He’s a refugee who’s run away from a War. A real one. With bombs and fires and bullies that hurt people. And the more I find out about him, the more I want to help.

the gauntlet

It didn’t look dangerous, exactly. When twelve-year-old Farah first laid eyes on the old-fashioned board game, she thought it looked…elegant.

It is made of wood, etched with exquisite images-a palace with domes and turrets, lattice-work windows that cast eerie shadows, a large spider-and at the very center of its cover, in broad letters, is written: The Gauntlet of Blood and Sand.

Has he spontaneously combusted? (Ted’s theory)

Is he even still alive? (The family’s unspoken fear)

Even the police are baffled – so it’s up to Ted, whose brain runs on its own unique operating system, to solve this mystery and find Salim.

After you’ve read this, try the sequel Guggenheim Mystery . Unusually, it was written by a different author, Robin Stevens. Siobhan always wanted to write the sequel, but sadly she passed away very suddenly before she could begin to work on it.

Most grownups would recognize David Walliams from his comedic sketch program Little Britain or as a judge on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent. However, kids fondly recall him as a darling author and poet.

The Boy in the Dress, was one of the first books by David Walliams. He has subsequently gone further to create a lengthy list of additional children’s books over the last decade.

The Best Books by David Walliams

Joe Spud is an 11-year-old kid having all the typical adolescent issues. Besides that, he is also a millionaire. Joe seems to have everything money can buy. From Olympic-sized indoor pools to cutting-edge  technology , although there’s something he doesn’t have: a friend.

david walliams books for 3 year olds

Thus, Joe sets out to persuade his father (a guy from modest beginnings who has now become a millionaire) to allow him to enroll at the local comprehensive school. But Joe’s problems don’t stop there.

Beginning a new school is only the beginning of a long process of self-discovery. Joe understands that money cannot buy pleasure and that families and friendships are much more essential  than  materialistic possessions.

This book is chock-full of oddball characters illustrated by Tony Ross. One of the most touching and smile-inducing books by David Walliams, Billionaire Boy is heart-warming and hilarious for both youngsters and adults.

The Ice Monster, David Walliams’ latest book, has received praise and accolades from critics and fans worldwide. This Victorian-era tale about the British orphan Elsie, this read promises a ‘MAMMOTH’ adventure, in the words of Walliams himself.

As word breaks about the existence of a strange ‘Ice Monster’ in the Arctic, Elsie takes off on a dangerous and thrilling journey across the ocean to learn more about the monstrous entity.

An immense and exciting tale that transports the readers from Victorian London to the  frozen  wastelands of the North Pole, the story demonstrates that superheroes exist in all shapes and sizes, from courageous little girls to 10,000-year-old woolly mammoths!  Trust  books by David Walliams to deliver the  dramatic irony  with a comic twist.

Mr. Stink by David Walliams examines that looks (and sometimes, scents) are deceptive. The tale of a lonesome tramp who develops a relationship with Chloe, a disturbed young woman from the very same area, is brought to life in this delightful British children’s book.

Chloe isn’t penniless, but she in spirit, she is homeless and lonely. She quickly develops a connection with Mr. Stink and his dog, Duchess, and sometimes hides them in her garden shed because it seems that they may be chased out of town.

This creative story tackles strong ideas of deceit, perspectives, and affection. Poignant and funny, Mr. Stink educates youngsters that everybody has secrets, that actual worth lies beyond the exterior, and true friendships may be discovered in the strangest of places. And the stinkiest of people!

The Boy in the Dress is notable for several reasons, given that it is Walliams’ debut. It recounts the tale of Dennis, who enjoys both soccer and clothing (that amuses his elder brother and lorry-driving father). 

david walliams books for 3 year olds

He feels isolated and lonely by his mother’s departure from the  family , whom he misses dearly. Dennis’s obsession with  fashion  baffles his father. Once he discovers an issue of Vogue magazine hidden beneath his son’s bed, and all the hell ensues.

However, after spending some  time  in detention with Lisa, the trendiest girl in school and a budding fashionista, he discovers that being “unique” isn’t that terrible after all. The novel deals with delicate topics such as non-conformity, preconceptions, and teenage relations with elegance and humor. 

Dennis’s excursion into cross-dressing, his humorous claims to be a foreign exchange student, and the nostalgic allusions to Um-Bongo inspire laughter as well as a hope for acceptance and self-esteem. We affirm, that readers will not be disappointed with this read by the witty, but conscious Walliams.

Ben does not believe he and his old Granny have anything in common. He’s eleven years old, an only kid who despises reading. At the same time, Granny prefers to play scrabble and relish stinky cabbage soup. Whenever his folks go to watch ballroom dances, he dreads his monthly trips to her home.

Everything changes, though, when he learns that his grandmother has a fascinating mystery. Her grandmother was once an infamous jewelry burglar, and her life’s goal is to steal the Crown Jewels! They embark upon a journey that will alter Ben’s life forever. 

Gangsta Granny is a beautiful novel that is thrilling, funny, and thought-provoking all at the same time. Several fascinating observations about our connections with parental expectations and the unique link between kids and their elders are hidden gems among humorous drawings and the corny puns.

David Walliams is on his way to become a worldwide sensation, given the immense popularity of his  writing . With worldwide sales of over 14.1 million books, his capacity to amaze audiences is unrivalled. Walliams has also been writing graphic novels. The most recent, The Bear Who Went Boo!, was released in November 2015 and has sold over 85,000 copies. 

His third picture book, The Queen’s Orang-utan, was explicitly published for Comic Relief. Walliams donated 100% of the profits to the charity. We at Podium school wish that these witty tales are read more by enthusiastic readers like you. Acquaint yourself with fascinating and unconventional tales by David Walliams and classic authors like  Beatrix Potter ,  C.S. Lewis  and  Enid Blyton  to regale children and grown-ups alike!

This show was the one that set up the television career of author David and made him popular. He made his writing debut with the children’s novel titled ‘The Boy in the Dress’. This book opened to the extreme popularity and acclaim after its publication in the year 2008.

Since then, author David has developed a reputation for himself as a successor of Roald Dahl. Since the year 2012, author David has been working as a judge on the talent show called Britain’s Got Talent on ITV. Other than that, he has also written a played an important role in a couple of seasons of the BBC One show called Big School.

Being a writer of children’s books, he has sold over 12.5 million printed copies of his books throughout the world.

Most of his books have also been translated into more than 46 foreign languages all over the world. Because of his growing popularity in such a short period of time, author David has been described by as the fastest growing author of children’s books in The United Kingdom.

On many occasions, the literary style of author David has been compared with the likes of Roald Dahl. David was born in London to Peter Williams and Kathleen. His father was a transportation engineer in London while his mother used to work as a lab technician.

Author David spent most of his growing years in Banstead, Surrey. He completed his schooling from the Collingwood Boys’s School, located in Wallington. He was also a student of the Reigate Grammar School, located in Surrey, where he used to be Robert Shearman’s contemporary.

Between the years 1989 and 1992, author David studied at the Bristol University. During that time, he used to reside at the Manor Hall and later graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama in the year 1992. It was during the university holidays in the year 1990 that David met with his future comedy partner named Matt Lucas while performing at the National Youth Theater.

After joining the actors’ union Equity, he changed his name from Williams to Walliams because there was already a person with the name David Williams in the union. One of the earliest novels written by author David Walliams was titled as ‘Billionaire Boy’.

This book was released by the Harper Collins publishers in the year 2010. The story of this novel appears to be an extraordinary and touching description from author David, who had already faced success with his previous novels called Mr Stink and The Boy in the Dress.

As these two novels were very much successful, much more was expected from author David with the novel, Billionaire Boy. The central plot of the book revolves around a boy named Joe, who seems to have a number of reasons to be extremely happy in his life.

In fact, there are about a billion reasons behind his happiness, according to him. Everyone in the town knows that he has enormous wealth and therefore he is one of the richest boys in the city. With the help of the huge amount of money that Joe has to his name, he has developed a private cinema, his personal bowling alley, and also his own butler, who is also believed to be an orangutan.

With all these things happening in his life, he has become the wealthiest 12 year old boy in the whole city. However, Joe does not seem to be happy rather. The reason is that even though he has billions of pounds, he does not have even a single friend with whom he can play.

Soon, someone comes into his life, who appreciates Joe for being himself and not because of his money. But still a problem exists as Joe is about to learn that as soon as money gets involved, nothing remains as it used to be. Joe has always heard his elders, saying that the best things in life always come for free, but if he does care about them, he is definitely going to all of them.

The previous novel proved to be extremely hilarious and was followed by another stunning and hilarious novel written by author David Walliams, titled as ‘Gangsta Granny’. This novel was published by the Children’s Books section of the Harper Collins publishers in the year 2011.

The story of this book is very much moving and went on to become one of the best sellers and fastest growing children’s book in the country. On the whole, the book tells the story of acceptance and prejudice, silly words, funny lists, etc.

It shows each and every hallmark of author David, which are depicted in his previous successful novels. The main protagonist of the novel is named as Ben. He becomes very much bored after being made to stay along with his grandmother at her house. He finds her to be the most boring grandma of all.

Ben even believes that his grandmother does not anything other than playing Scrabble and eating cabbage soup. However, there are several things that she has hidden from him and the rest of the world. Ben’s grandmother once used to be an international jewel thief.

All her life, she has been making plans and plots to rob the Crown Jewels, but hasn’t succeeded yet. Now, she needs the help of Ben to accomplish her mission. If Ben comes about these truths of her grandmother, he will become totally devastated and shocked.

Children's books

What age would you say the david walliams books are suitable for.

NannyR · 04/11/2021 13:03

Not so much in terms of reading ability, but in terms of understanding the story lines. Thanks.

Interesting question. I dont think the two match up - the reading level is, imo, far below the topics covered. They were never a hit in our house, so maybe I'm biased tho.

I have only read some of the earlier ones and I found there was a lot of 'pop culture' references - TV shows, celebrities, trends etc which means the books date very easily. Most children reading these books for the first time probably won't have a clue what and who half the things mentioned are. Some children will find this quite confusing. I can't say what the newer ones are like though.

Never!!. There are way better books!!

Mine enjoyed them from about age 5 to age 11. At the younger end I was probably reading them to them......as they got older they read them themselves. My youngest is now 9 and a bit over them......but that's more because a) he heard a lot of them at a younger age because he has older siblings and b) he enjoys more complex stories now......is currently working his way though Alex rider and previously was reading all the Young Shirlock books.

I've only read the first two or three and I wasn't that impressed with them. I know a child who has just turned five who has been bought a box set of them - they are a very good reader and would have no trouble actually reading the words on the page but I think the stories would just go straight over their head.

My dgs8 loves them

My 9 year old enjoys them.

Ours are used for bedtime stories rather than self reading. Not for the reading ability but the context. I leave them to dh to read to the kids as they arent my cup of tea!

My DD really enjoyed them in about y4 & y5, so aged 8-10. They helped move her on from Horrid Henry and bridge the gap before she was ready for Harry Potter. (For those saying better books, maybe, but they served a purpose. DD never got on with Roald Dhal.)

My 8 yo thinks they're very funny!

I'm starting to think these are the the kids version of the Fifty Shades of Grey books. Not the theme obviously, but that they are books for people who don't really like reading that much, they will have their moment, and will all be lining the charity shops or being used as doorstops before long. But then I don't think it's was David Walliams aim to write masterpieces, just to cash in on the kids book market. And he's done very well at that. But his books are pretty hollow, some have a good idea or premis, but the stories themselves are uncomplicated, the characters are often lazy stereotypes and there is no beauty in the words of language. They feel hurried and one dimensional.

But who cares if they aren't great literature if they get reluctant readers to read? They really helped move DD onwards in her reading, and I don't really care further than that.

Yes they can be a good laugh and get kids reading, so good for resistant readers. I've had fun reading a couple to my DC, putting on silly voices etc. But the reading style doesn't match up to the maturity of content for just that reason. They are not great prose, but they are good fun if you don't mind the exaggerated stereotypical characters and 'slapstick' type humour which kids quite often like anyway. Much better than some of the animal and fairy books one of my DC go into. They had literally not one spec of humour in them

My 10 year old has really enjoyed reading them over the last two years. They aren't the best written books or what I would necessarily pick for him but I remember one of his teachers saying that it really doesn't matter what they are reading, be it comic, fairy books, silly books, things we might think are very childish or boring etc If they are wanting to pick up a book and read then that is a great thing. Obviously it needs to be something that doesn't have completely age inappropriate themes though!

I would say no younger than 9 or 10 even though people recommend them all the time for younger. Similarly Roald Dahl is always recommended for young kids when I think they are quite dark and not really ideal for little ones, even though brilliant.

Some of the themes really are rubbish, I disliked reading the one about the fat, skint horrible Woman who only ate prawn cocktail crisps. Then there was the guy who liked killing rats in awful ways. One book has a reference to porn mags under a bed. They are really badly written and full of nasty attitudes to low income families and overweight people. However the kids that I know read them are probably 7-11 years.

Smile

None, they are bloody dire

DS was reading them (and understanding them) very happily at age 7.

My oldest DD started reading them at 6/7 but as already mentioned, the references and the topics are a bit old. They read like books aimed at older kids reading at a younger level. In any case she eventually got bored of them being predictable and a bit mean, thankfully.

I'm not crazy about them, they're very vulgar and unkind. But some children do find them funny. In terms of language and complexity, I'd imagine most children would follow them after probably six but they would be very simple for a nine year old.

Ds8 seems to like them. The language used is much lower than the topics covered, and they are very old fashioned in terms of some of the settings. DH has struggled through quite a lot of them and described it as Enid Blyton dumbed down, there are a lot of outdated stereotypes and a lot of bereavement. But if DS will read them, so be it. Luckily he’s moved on to Skulduggery Pleasant and those are far more bearable.

The garb-age. Sorry, I was so pleased with myself I had to write that down. In answer to your real question, my 8 yo didn’t mind the gorilla one set in WW2 too much, but all the pages were taken up with ‘bang! Boom!
