What they say: Fans of Horrid Henry and Wimpy Kid will love the diaries of Britain’s most famous naughty boy. In this story, Dennis the Menace – Prankmaster General and feared enemy of softies everywhere – has been sent to an elite boarding school. Help! Dennis is surrounded by bookish boffins, can’t hang out with the Bash Street Kids and is nearly starving as the school dining room only serves super-healthy food. What he needs is a plan. With a little help from his menacing buddies on the outside, some fart pellets and Gran on a Charley Davison bike, it’s time for Dennis to make his great escape . . .
What we say: “Dexter has read 56 pages of the 160 within the first evening of receiving this book – I think he’s enjoying it!”
Dexter says: “It’s rather a long book but I like the pictures and the characters too. Dennis is a bit naughty! I’m going to read more tomorrow…”
The Diary of Dennis the Menace – The Great Escape is released on 4 February 2016 and will be available from many good book stores.
