Super funny book! I love books by this author. ( )
  Mikelodeon | Apr 26, 2015 |
Although I didn't enjoy the humour, I'm certain that it will appeal to some students. Zoe ends up with a pet rat that her stepmother will not let her keep. When she brings it to school and Armitage, the rat, gets discovered, Zoe is suspended. When she arrives home, the man who operates a burger food truck near her school is in her bedroom masquerading as a pest control man. Zoe discovers that he grinds up rats to make the patties and she is determined to save Armitage from such a gruesome death.
Students for sure will have difficulty with the many British terms that pop up in the book such as: fags, bop, cardigan, tarmac, bunking off, etc. but other than that it's an easy read. A word of warning - Zoe's dad has lost his job and spends all of his time in the pub. She is neglected and verbally abused by the stepmother so it isn't the happy story that it appears to be by the cover.
People who enjoyed Roald Dahl's Matilda will enjoy this book. ( )

After watching Mr Stink at Christmas we started this book. I did enjoy it, but there are quite a lot of similarities between the two stories. It was funny and scary in parts, I think Walliams is trying to be the new Roald Dahl which is a good aim, but he has a way to go yet. ( )

Great funny UK fiction - fantastic author for children who love Andy Stanton (Mr Gum series), Philip Ardagh (Th eGrunts etc) and Roald Dahl! ( )
