About the Author:

Since 2008 David Walliams has taken the children's literary world by storm. His most recent book RATBURGER, immediately went to no.1 in the children's chart, while the PB of his previous title, GANGSTA GRANNY, currently dominates the UK charts and has sold over 100,000 PBs on top of 370,000+ HBs and 36,000 ebooks (Bookscan July 2013). Today, David is the fastest growing Children's author in the UK. His books have been translated into 30+ languages and sold over 2 million copies in the UK alone.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–8—The protagonist in this offbeat story is Dennis, a 12-year-old boy whose eclectic interests range from football (soccer) to fashion. He's mocked for his purchase of Vogue magazine but he just can't resist poring over the photo shoots, enamored with the color, cut, and style of women's dresses. Dennis meets up with Lisa, the school hottie, who is two years older and also a fashion aficionado. She plays dress up with Dennis and convinces him to come to school as "Denise," a French exchange student. Hilarity ensues as soccer-star Dennis, outfitted in an orange sequined sheath, complete with wig and makeup, attempts to pull off the ruse. This quirky comedy also has poignant moments between Dennis and his dad and brother. It's a quick read and Blake's stylistic line illustrations are the icing on the cake. All that being said, it's difficult to predict an audience for this book. Younger students may be turned off by the Briticisms, and it's a bit too juvenile for older readers.—Patricia N. McClune, Conestoga Valley High School, Lancaster, PA
