'It is 2120 and London is in ruins.
The young Prince Alfred has never known a life outside Buckingham Palace – but when strange goings-on breach its walls and stalk the corridors in the dead of night, he is thrust into a world of mystery, adventure and monsters.
And when his mother, the Queen, is dragged away to the Tower of London, Alfred must screw up his courage and battle to save her, himself… and the entire city.'
This book was wonderful.
I am a massive David Walliams fan, so I expected a lot from this book. As usual David Walliams and Tony Ross delivered the goods.
This fantastic novel take the reader on a journey to the future, where good and evil must do battle. With the world at stake, this epic story will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the final page.
While this book takes place in the future and deals with myths and fantasy, it doesn't shy away from very real situations and emotions. There is definitely lessons to be learned throughout this book.
Once again the pairing of David Walliams and Tony Ross created magic. Tony Ross' amazing illustrations completely enhance this wonderful book and perfectly capture the heart and soul of David Walliams' story.
I can easily say that David Walliams is one of my favourite Middle Grade Author's, and his partnership with Tony Ross is a match made in heaven. I honestly cant wait to see what they create next.
If you have a middle grade reader in your life, you have to get them some David Walliams novels. Trust me, they will absolutely love them. In fact, why not start them off with this one. There's no time like the present.
The Beast of Buckingham Palace by David Walliams is a must have for all middle grade readers.
