Hamish and the Worldstoppers (Hamish #1)
|Author:||Danny Wallace; Jamie Littler (Illustrator)|
Winner of Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards: Fiction for Age 9+ 2015.
Wallace's vividly imagined adventure cracks along at a brisk pace. Bristling with one-liners, it has an easy, unforced humour and a strong sense of excitement... Time freezing is a neat device and Wallace uses it skilfully to make almost anything seem possible. * The Guardian * Like David Walliams, Wallace is a comedian turned children's author. Of the two, Wallace's writing is the funnier. -- Children's Book of the Week * The Sunday Times * Original, quirky and super silly, Wallace has written a great book that kids - particularly boys - will really enjoy. * The Sun * Poor Danny Wallace! Once kids get their hands on this quirky and hilarious book, they're gonna be bugging him to write Hamish stories 'til he's 97. -- Tim Minchin HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! -- Frank Cottrell Boyce
