      I loved this book because it is very energetic and shows that you can do what you like and be who you like. I totally recommend it for 8-12 year olds. My mum loves this book too!

        I like David Walliams. I was strolling around in the library when the book suddenly caught my eye. True, True, I would have given it five stars, except the context isn't clear, and it's not easy to know where the characters are.

              The book was awesome, I loved it. Dennis was in love with a girl. He loved fashion. Bye - bye.
