    This book was a really good book when I read it in the holidays my sister got them for her birthday and I had nothing better to read, I found this book really for little children I enjoyed the book but ther wasn’t enough words on a pages so it didn’t take long to read

    This book is the best book of the series and i hope Andy writes more books that will keep you reading for hours and hours.

    This book made me laugh my head of, the funniest bit(s) of the the book was a bit about a photocopier and the sherry factory.

    That’s all i am going to tell you about this book, you`ll have to read the book to find out what happens.

    This book made me laugh for hours so i hope it makes you laugh too.
