Zany and fun Jack and his parents live in a London suburb in 1983 His grandfather lives on his own in a nearby apartment, but for him, it s still 1940, and he is a vivacious young fighter pilot, flying his Spitfire and battling the Germans I m a big fan of WWII aircraft so I liked this aspect, and the only way for Jack to communicate with his grandfather is by calling him Squadron Commander, whereas Jack is Wing Leader Unfortunately, Grandpa s age and dissociation is a real threat, and a Zany and fun Jack and his parents live in a London suburb in 1983 His grandfather lives on his own in a nearby apartment, but for him, it s still 1940, and he is a vivacious young fighter pilot, flying his Spitfire and battling the Germans I m a big fan of WWII aircraft so I liked this aspect, and the only way for Jack to communicate with his grandfather is by calling him Squadron Commander, whereas Jack is Wing Leader Unfortunately, Grandpa s age and dissociation is a real threat, and after a few dangerous incidents, he is sent to an old age home, which he thinks is a German prison, especially since there are nefarious activities afoot Jack and Grandpa mount a jailbreak for the residents One of their few allies in the local Indian newsstand vendor, who if you are offended by stereotypes, you won t like this at all The love between grandson grandfather and the illustrations are the highlight here Well Mr Walliams back on form After a few disappointing reads not just for me, but lots of young library customers , this latest from the comedian sees him back on what he appears to do best heartfelt family stories, with lots of humour and exciting plots My favourites are still Boy in the Dress and Billionaire Boy, but this fits nicely up there with them And includes a story about a very tough subject for children the mental deterioration of dementia Alzheimer s in older people This, Well Mr Walliams back on form After a few disappointing reads not just for me, but lots of young library customers , this latest from the comedian sees him back on what he appears to do best heartfelt family stories, with lots of humour and exciting plots My favourites are still Boy in the Dress and Billionaire Boy, but this fits nicely up there with them And includes a story about a very tough subject for children the mental deterioration of dementia Alzheimer s in older people This, at heart though, is a story about a boy and his Granddad Jack s parents very much background characters are not as important to Jack as his Grandpa, he of the daring war stories, tales of aerial adventure and escape, dogfights and danger We watch Jack noticing his Grandpa s increasing forgetfulness, and slightly manic episodes that lead him to Twilight Towers, a care home that is not all that it appears to be.This is a long book for Walliams, atthan 400 pages, though it zips by It could almost be two books, as the first half isconcerned with the misadventures that see Grandpa declining into a man who sees himself and his grandson as back in the War, and the second with the care home I thought both worked, and didn t feel it was too long, though a newly emergent reader may struggle with the length.Walliams has left the over the top humour to one side for this story, focusingon funny happenings and characters than authorial asides and long words covering two pages.Set in the 80s, we also get a young Raj still the same , though the time period isn t obvious, but means Grandpa can be the right age for the war veteran he needs to be This is an excellent mixture of warmth, humour and pathos, with adults reading very likely to feel choked up at both the relationship between a loving Jack and his oblivious Grandpa, and the depiction of dementia Walliams conveys There is still enough of Walliams zany humour some wonderfully evil villains, some incredibly eccentric care home residents and lots of manic adventure to keep a 7 11 year old reader happy as well And an ending that is both moving and appropriate It s one that you could even discuss in classes.I m so glad I m able to write a wholly positive review after a few disappointing reads by the author I love this side to his writing, and there s a queue of readers in the library that say the same.A winner all round Lovely idea, very sensitively executed Such a heartwarming and inspiring story I loved the focus on the importance of grandparents Was pretty good and reminds me of Roald Dahls work.
