Plot: There are two problems. First, there is the problem when Champ heard Geronimo singing in the shower and put him in the concert, where he would be competing with the best singers in the world. The second is that he won, but the Pirate Express people who wanted to make copies hardly sold any CDs. Do Geronimo and his detective friend, Hercule Poirat, solve the mystery? You will have to read the book to find out how!
How the characters made me feel: Benjamin made me feel love, I loved him. Geronimo Stilton made me feel brave,I loved him, too. Trap made me feel nothing and I didn’t really like him. Thea made me feel nothing, but I liked her. Champ made me feel active and I liked that. Hercule Poirot made me feel nothing, but I liked him.
I loved the book. My favourite part was when he had a program because every hour he took a cold shower. There were no funny part. I learned never to give up. I recommend this book to all children from Year 1 to Year 6.

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.
