    Petra-X Off having adventures

    This is such an old-fashioned book. A small boy hero, authority figures who must be disobeyed by the small boy if he is to triumph, suspension of disbelief (or if you want to be trendy, magical realism), an ugly, wicked adversary who fools everyone except the small boy, and a crowd of minor characters. Everyone is fed up with Grandpa who is old and forgetful and put him in a home which is designed by the vicar/owner of the home to fleece people of their money.

A small boy hero, authority figures who must be disobeyed by the small boy if he is to triumph, suspension of disbelief (or if you want to be trendy, magical realism), an ugly, wicked adversary who fools everyone except the small boy, and a crowd of minor characters. Everyone is fed up with Grandpa who is old and forgetful and put him in a home which is designed by the vicar/owner of the home to fleece people of their money. Only his grandson sees past the dementia to the essence of his Grandpa and knows that by keeping conversation in the past, the airforce, he remembers that Grandpa will be totally lucid. There follows adventures, a dramatic escape, a tremendously tear-jerking ending (I cried, I really did) and that wonderful feeling you get when you've read a story where all the elements have worked out, the baddies have got their brutal comeuppance (the sort removed from all Disney interpretations of fairy tales) and the hero is lauded by all. The moral. Everyone thought that Grandpa and old people in general were worthless as they couldn't remember anything and needed looking after instead of being self-sufficient. Only the little boy saw that all the old people, if you related to them on their level, had something to say and were just as much fun and adventurous as everyone else and should not be put away, dumped and forgotten. The second moral. If you don't have anything much to look forward to, go out with the sunset on a high note. A really really high one looping the skies forever!

    Definitely my favorite Walliams book! Exciting, fun, and truly dreamy for my kids! They will surely be dreaming of Grampa Bunting, oops Wing Commander Bunting, flying high in the sky in his Spitfire tonight! Amazing and beautifully written and illustrated, I cannot say enough to recommend this book to all parents for their kids. Up, up, and AWAY!

    I gave this book 4 stars for the message it sends out about elderly people and how they can get ill and children not understanding why. Jack loved his grandfather and watched him get more ill as the story unfolded, however, Jack never let this effect the way he treated his grandfather and only for the love of Jack towards his grandfather, allowed them to endure many adventures together. This made the story have that emotional edge and the reason you want to keep turning the pages.

The story itself got a little too silly in places and I felt this ruined the message David Walliams was trying to get across.

Grandpa and Jack go on many adventures together, with grandpa thinking that he is still fighting in the war, this leads to adventures in spitfires and close encounters with the police. Grandpa lives in a flat above Raj’s newsagent shop, this means exiting the building at night is easy as Raj is extremely forgetful, he forgets to lock the shop door. After escaping from the evil retirement village, Grandpa encounters love with a fellow resident of the retirement village. If you are into thrill and adventure, reading about Jack and Grandpas adventures is a good book for you.

    David Walliams’s series of children’s books keep growing and what I like about them is the focus on familial relationships in the midst of the madcap adventures and irreverent humour. The ones about grandparents are especially moving, and this one is in the vein of “Gangsta Granny”. A tad more serious and sobering than that story, we have 12-year-old Jack, grappling with his beloved grandpa’s developing dementia.

The ones about grandparents are especially moving, and this one is in the vein of “Gangsta Granny”. A tad more serious and sobering than that story, we have 12-year-old Jack, grappling with his beloved grandpa’s developing dementia. A World War 2 fly ace with the RAF, Grandpa gets increasingly entrenched in the past, believing the war is still going on, and Jack plays along, to help him cope. Together they get into many (mis)adventures, and Jack fights against all obstacles to try to stop his Grandpa from being sent to an old folks’ home. While the plot may seem a trifle riotous and at times unbelievable, Jack’s love for his Grandpa shines through, and that relationship is central to the entire book. Characterisation is consistent and one of Walliams’s strong points as a writer is how he makes even the minor characters memorable, and you can imagine them being central characters of a spin-off story. A case in point is Raj, the gregarious corner store owner, who has appeared in all of the series so far, and wondrously funny.

    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.

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, at more than 400 pages, though it zips by. It could almost be two books, as the first half is more concerned 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, focusing more on 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.

I've read all of his books now, apart from his latest, and this is easily up there with the best of them.

This was a heartfelt, emotional read which still managed to maintain Walliams' humour, wit and charm. I've read all of his books now, apart from his latest, and this is easily up there with the best of them. The way the book handles sensitive topics such as mental deterioration of the elderly through Alzheimer's and dementia is also exceptional. Jack's grandpa is his hero and his daring adventures in the RAF during the war have always been fascinating to him. However, Grandpa still thinks that these adventures are real and that he is currently living in the war. This leads to all sorts of daring, hilarious and entertaining adventures including Grandpa 'flying' at the top of a church spire! Though Grandpa is a hero to Jack, his diminishing memory leads to Jack's parents sending him to a retirement home like no other - Twilight Towers! However, Twilight Towers certainly isn't all it seems to be... Unlike his other books, Walliams chooses to set this story during the 1980s. It works flawlessly and his writing is superb, showing Grandpa's deterioration in a sympathetic and realistic manner whilst remaining a fun and positive novel. To Grandpa, Jack is a Squadron Leader and is the only person who can understand his Grandpa fully and treats him as a hero. I loved the characters and world which Walliams has beautifully and expertly crafted, I'm sure it will instantly intrigue and excite children aged around 7+. Highly recommend this as it's fun, engaging and a brilliant adventure! Definitely a must-have book for fans both new and old of the brilliant David Walliams. 5/5 stars!

No one has any idea about this though. So jacks helps his grandpa plot a daring escape and expose the world about the matrons plans. After that, Grandpa and jack go through a lot, including trapping 2 police officers in scottland yard because grampa thinks their on the other side, breaking into a mueseum to try take back grampas spitfire, twice, and breaking the mueseums walls with a army tank. Review: I enjoyed this fiction book a lot because of the idea of the story, and how the author tells a nice message in a way humorous and enjoyable to read. I would recommend this book for kids around 9-13.

    This is a fun story and it has a touching ending; not to mention this is a great adventure. There are some good points about what makes life worth living. The best part for me was the idea that society tends discount how much children can understand and that they are capable of thinking through difficult issues and coming up with solutions.

We also tend to dismiss older people, not accepting that they might still have something valuable to contribute. It may not be what they contributed during their working years, but it is still important. "Up, up, and away!" for Jack and Grandpa. David Williams is billed on the dust cover as the heir to Roald Dahl. I wouldn't go that far, but that's okay. Although I love Roald Dahl, we don't need another. But we do need an original David Williams and that is what we have here. "Up, up, and away!" to David too.

    Read this book with my son Gabriel who is a very reluctant reader. We both loved it. Such a fun and educational way to teach the calamity of war, Alzheimer and loss to this young generation. The book tells us the story of Jack and his fantastic grandfather who had been a pilot during the World War II, their adventures and how Jack is the only one who can truly believe and understand his granddad.

    This was the longest David Walliams book we've read so far. It's really two stories in the one book. We both loved this one. A story told with great empathy and humour. It's taken us quite a while to read it, with reading a few chapters each night but it was really enjoyable throughout. This was the longest David Walliams book we've read so far.

    ‘Grandpa's Great Escape’ made by known and awarded bestselling author for children David Walliams, brings an exciting but also , in many ways, an educational story for the young readers, together with great illustrations made by Tony Ross .

Jack is twelve years old boy who manages to get along best with his Grandpa suffering from dementia. Grandpa was a Second World War fighter pilot ‘Grandpa's Great Escape’ made by known and awarded bestselling author for children David Walliams, brings an exciting but also , in many ways, an educational story for the young readers, together with great illustrations made by Tony Ross . The story is all about one special family relationship - the bond between a young boy and his beloved grandfather. Jack is twelve years old boy who manages to get along best with his Grandpa suffering from dementia. Grandpa was a Second World War fighter pilot and because of his age, this old man more and more regresses back to his days in WWII. For Grandpa his grandson is some squadron leader from the past and what else you need for a lot of fun and excitement. But, because of Jack’s parents worry Grandpa is going to an old people’s home, Twilight Towers, in order to make sure that he is under constant care. But one night Grandpa will go missing and Jack’s father tried to find him. When he will not succeed, Jack and his mother will go out looking for Grandpa and suddenly Jack will remember Grandpa’s words that will help them find this old ace… For anyone at least a little acquainted in the world of picture books and children's authors, the name of David Walliams will be immediately familiar – in last seven years he topped the children’s chart with many books and currently is the fastest-growing children's author in the UK, while his books have been translated into more than 40 languages. Also, the two of his known works ‘Ratburger’ and ‘Demon Dentist’ won the UK National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year. I read many books Walliams nicely made for children – ‘Demon Dentist’ and his latest ‘Grandpa's Great Escape’ are so far the best ones at least in my opinion - and always his works are distinguished with the educational themes, but also with lot of excitement and plenty of humor. Therefore with his latest book this author again did excellently, delivering well-made, adventurous and humorous children book. Definitely worth mentioning is Tony Ross artwork that in combination with exciting and warm story overall resulted with a must-have book for the old and new fans of Walliams’s work.

I think it would be a good way to introduce young children to the concept of dementia. There was a glossary in the back explaining some terms common to WWII and Britain's role in the war. I liked that it was there, as in the US many young kids in the age of the target audience probably only have a very basic understanding of the war. I think I mostly enjoyed the power of imagination in the book. So much of it is far fetched and ridiculous, but that makes it a lot of fun. I felt like I was flying right along side Jack and Wing Commander in the Spitfire. Although I expected a sad ending, I didn't feel like it was sad at all-which is also really good for younger readers. I think I will have to check out more of David Walliams' work, this was the first book written by him that I have read.

I reccomend this book to people how like fiction.

    This is a very enjoyable book as it is funny and fantastical. The book is very much a page turner as you want to know whats going to happen to grandpa and his grandson in the old peoples and how they are going to escape. The ending was very interesting as you wouldnt guess that granpa was going to fly a plane form a museum. I would reccomend this to peoplemas it was very fun and enjoyable fornthe whole family

    It's such a wonderful book. Full of adventure and funny moments. Above all else, however, this book is about extraordinary relationship between Jack and his grandfather. Under all the laughs and funny moments this book delivers fundamentally crucial message: old age doesn't mean dead and there's nothing more important than bond between family.

    Grandpa's Great Escape is a wonderful story in the vein of Roald Dahl. The book design is fabulous, the characters ridiculous (in the best way), and the story heartfelt. It beautifully addresses a grandfather/grandson relationship affected by Alzheimers with imagination and adventure that makes the pain bearable (for the characters and the readers). I highly recommend this as a family read. Grandpa's Great Escape is a wonderful story in the vein of Roald Dahl.
