Review by rata
This book is typical of Walliams quirky sense of humour and children seem to love it. His writing style is great for kids as it portrays a lightness and humorous way of looking at the world. I did enjoy this book as I found the story line ideas good and believable, however at times the story became somewhat repetitive & at times monotonously boring. I must admit I skimmed through it to get the storyline which revolves around a tiddlywink obsessed Aunt Alberta and her pet Bavarian Owl, Wagner. Aunt Alberta is on a mission to cheat the young Lady Stella Saxby out of her inheritance - Saxby Hall. Lady Stella is fortunate to have the help of a ghost named Soot. His character is good to read as you find yourself taking on a cockney accent. Between both of them they take on Aunt Alberta and in the end they rightfully retain Saxby Hall. A great story that tells of good versus evil in a humourous way.
