The Boy In The Dress is a children’s book written by David Walliams, illustrated by Quentin Blake, who illustrated all of Roald Dahl’s books. It is the first book by Walliams, a television comedian best known for the show ‘Little Britain’. He writes in a ‘Dahlian’ flair and touches upon a controversial subject. A television film adaptation was produced for the BBC and a film was released in 2014.
Dennis is a boy who enjoys football and fashion. He likes dressing like a girl and being different. It’s really like the book, it is very funny. My favourite part was when everybody went to the football pitch, wearing dresses to play football. The whole book is hilarious.
I learned that you can be anything you want and not care if the others don’t like it.
Some of the main characters are: Dennis, Darvesh, Lisa, Denis’ father and John. I really like all the characters because they make me feel nice and happy.
I recommend it because it gives an important message and is a fun book to read.
