When Tom gets hit on the head by a cricket ball and finds himself at Lord Funt Hospital, he is greeted by the most terrifying-looking man he’s ever seen. And just when he thinks things can’t get any worse, in walks the wicked matron in charge of the children’s ward. . . .
Little does Tom know that once he meets his fellow patients, he will embark on the most epic journey of a lifetime.
The Midnight Gang is the spellbinding story of five children in a hospital ward—and on a quest for adventure!
“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.”
“Walliams gives Grandpa-and [his] Spitfire-a grand send-off. A pleaser for fans of similar escapades engineered by the likes of Roald Dahl or Frank Cotrell-Boyce.”
“Ross’s energetic drawings and some playful use of typography bring additional drama and humor to the story. The story’s comedy is nicely counterbalanced by the poignant bond between Jack and Grandpa.”
PRAISE IN THE USA FOR DEMON DENTIST: “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.”
UK PRAISE FOR DAVID WALLIAMS: “No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is the heir to Roald Dahl-and that’s saying a lot.”
“Walliams’s books will become classics.”
“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.”
