David Walliams, Frank Lampard, Ricky Gervais – to you and me well known names from the celebrity world but to my 8 year old son, authors of some of his favourite children’s books. Now you can add to the list of famouses-turned-author, funny man David Baddiel. In fact Baddiel has been writing for many years but has only ventured into children’s fiction more recently. Already a huge fan myself I need no convincing of his humour and brilliance but as we know, kids are the harshest critics and so on this occasion I’ve delegated the task of reviewing ‘AniMalcolm’ (Baddiel’s latest) to my own little bookwork, Spud.

At first he thought the book looked a bit big compared to his usual reads but inside the text and illustrations are well spaced out and make this an easy read for him- he flew through the pages chuckling away to himself! He really enjoyed it and especially loved the idea of the main character being turned into all the different animals and experiencing life from their point of view! Two big thumbs up from this little bookworm.

“I loved it when he was turned into different animals!” – Spud Brown, 8 years

Check out the trailer below!

Spud is a regular reader and found this book easy to enjoy. He’s already asked if there are any more AniMalcolm books so it looks like we have another Baddiel fan in the family!  It’s aimed at 7-11yr olds which I would say is ideal.

  1. This sounds like a great book. I love the idea of a story where the main character changes into different animal. I didn’t realise David Baddiel wrote kids books, either. I loved David Walliam’s The Midnight Gang so if it’s anything like that in terms of humour, it will be a hit in our house!
