Textul de pe ultima copertă

In his old age, Grandpa has become confused. He believes he is back in World War II, when he was an RAF Spitfire pilot. Only one person can understand him: his grandson, Jack.
When Grandpa is sent to Twilight Towers—an old folk’s home run by sinister Matron Swine—it’s up to Jack and Grandpa to plot a daring escape. Little do they know, the wicked matron is on to them. . . .


”A realistic and touching relationship. Ample illustrations from the always splendid Ross will keep the pages in this plump volume turning. A Dahl-esque tale.”
“While the irreverent wit will keep readers engaged, the surprising tenderness in the relationship between Jack and his ailing grandfather is what makes this book truly shine. A darkly humorous tale with a surprising amount of heart.”
“The comedy is nicely counterbalanced by the poignant bond between Jack and Grandpa. Ross’s energetic drawings and some playful use of typography bring additional drama and humor to the story.”
“A pleaser for fans of similar escapades engineered by the likes of Roald Dahl or Frank Cotrell-Boyce. Walliams, already popular in the UK, is a best-seller this side of the pond as well, and this caper promises to be no different.”
“The ultimate emphasis on loving people where you find them, as Jack does when he accepts his role as squadron leader rather than grandson, is poignant and well conveyed, even amid the cheeky humor.”
“A Brit-flavored romp that combines moments of intense terror and bracing courage with biting satire.”
“A Dahl-esque mix of humor and horror that will appeal to fans of both.”
“A goofy, gory, outlandish tale of deep evil and terrible tooth-rot—and sweetness of heart. Kids who enjoy humorous gross-out horror will definitely want to book an appointment of their own with the Demon Dentist.”
“Dahl-esque in the extreme…Frenetic humor for middle grade fans of the funny and fearsome.”
“No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is the heir to Roald Dahl—and that’s saying a lot.”
“Unlike other celebrity authors, Walliams can write; his energetic fairytale will be relished.”
“The joy of David’s books are that he completely understands how children think and feel and is never ever patronising.”
“Further proof that Walliams has become a master storyteller. Walliams manages to infuse his novels with genuine wit and sly commentary.”
“Comedian David Walliams has taken the publishing world by storm.”
“A triumphant mix of wit and warmth.”
“A great comic tale—Walliams is a natural wit.”
“Walliams’s books will become classics.”
