David Walliams chosen and recommened by the boys in my class

David Walliams is not an author I would particularly recommend but he has struck a chord with several of the boys in my class, therefore he has gone up in my estimation in being able engage the reader. They find him funny and were surprised that he tackles various issues such as cancer in Gangsta Granny. Two boys were so engaged and wanted to share / read Gangsta Granny together that one of them brought in their copy to use with the one I had supplied. One boy has now bought the latest book and is keen to share it with others.

About booksfrommybookshelf

I am a passionate reader of children's books (Primary aged) with a particular interest in picture books. I am always on the look out for children's books at are written by authors from other countries. I am also keen on technology and try to keep abreast of what is happening in a fast changing world. At present my day job is to support teachers and local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region (UK), which I really enjoy. Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
