Description

David’s books have now exceeded 100 non-consecutive weeks at children’s number one, and have been translated into 53 languages, selling more than 35 million copies worldwide. I loved the writing, the story, the characters, and the illustrations and that is why I can easily see this book becoming a fast favourite with young readers. Accompanied by doodles and aiding visuals this book will help you visualise all of its gritty details and add more clarity to the narrative.

She spends her days reading comics about alien invasions, doodling UFOs, watching B-movies about Earth being invaded by creatures from Mars… and gazing at the stars through her old, battered telescope. I liked Yuri and Ruth and feel like this book has potential for sequels of adventures and even prequels of Spaceboy and Ruth's lives prior to them meeting. Schock has built 25 rockets that have all crashed, but Ruth immediately realises that his brand-new rocket needs a pointy –not round– head. Biography: David Walliams is a literary phenomenon whose books have sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and have been translated into fifty-five languages.

Thrown into a bouncing, flying, racing, falling, but fabulously fun adventure, Ruth does everything she can to keep her first real friend (besides Yuri) safe. It's not about the length of time it takes a child to finish a book, it's about consistency, and if a child reads frequently, daily, for about 10 minutes, that's all the difference it makes between developing reasoning skills, confidence, a great vocab and the hunger to learn more, to know more. Thought it was a little dark with the way the kids were treated and their backstories for younger kids but each one to themselves.

I've lost count of how many David Walliams books I've read now (all with my 10yo) but this one has been my favourite so far.I loved that even though this story was different from David Walliams’ other novels; both in place and time, it didn’t lose any of its Walliams’ magic. Schock, a half-human-half-robot scientist who used to build rockets for the Führer and was offered a deal by the Americans after the war: he would not go to trial if he worked on the US space programme. There is a silliness to it but also a depth as both Ruth and Spaceboy have a parent-guardian who abuses them verbally on a daily bases. Spaceboy is written on a snippet of history that changed our world and allowed us to dream of bigger things. David Walliams, the mastermind behind numerous beloved children's books, takes young readers on an intergalactic journey with his latest masterpiece, "Spaceboy.

It's the 1960's and space is a hot topic as the USA tries to copy their Russian rivals in the space race. Some cultural stereotypes crop up as well which I believe Walliams has also been pulled up on in his World's Worst Children/Teachers books.

David Walliams is a literary phenomenon whose books have sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and have been translated into fifty-five languages. One night, using the telescope she's scavenged to watch the stars, Ruth is astounded to see an ACTUAL UFO crashing near the farm.During the very time that the two superpowers, America, and Russia, were involved in the race for space, a twelve-year-old orphan girl, Ruth, was living with her aunt on an ostrich farm. It is the early 1960's and on a little farm Ruth and her little dog Yuri dream of the excitement of the space race and getting away from her awful aunt Dorothy. The different fonts and sizes and sound effects are such a pain to read aloud and let's be honest are little more than padding. This book has various examples of onomatopoeia and vocabulary which could extend the narrative writing of young students and provides links to 1960s history and brief information about space.

His tenth novel, BAD DAD, was an immediate number one, following the triumph of THE MIDNIGHT GANG, the biggest-selling children’s book of 2016. As always, Walliams’ text, in combination with illustrations by Adam Stower, is both heartwarming and hilarious, perfect reading material for readers of eight years and older. As always, this new novel is chocka blocka with funny illustrations sharing the action and antics throughout the novel. Stuck on a remote farm with her awful aunt, twelve-year-old orphan Ruth spends every night gazing at the stars, dreaming of adventure.I had to look up other books by David Wallace, and next on our bookshelves is GANGSTA GRANNY and CODE NAME BANANAS. But when a UFO crash-lands in a cornfield near her home, Ruth is suddenly launched into a supersonic adventure full of mystery and surprises… and a secret that could change the course of history! However, when the soldier announces that they are flying to meet the President, the situation seems to be getting out of control.
