"Dennis felt like he was on a rollercoaster. He didn't have to be boring Dennis anymore. I can be whoever I want to be! he thought."
Charming, surprising and hilarious - The Boy in the Dress is everything you would expect from the co-creator of Little Britain. David Walliams's beautiful first novel will touch the hearts (and funny bones) of children and adults alike.
This book is all about a boy named Dennis. He lives in a boring house in a boring street in a boring town, and he doesn't have much to look forward to. But what he does have is dreams - and once he starts to follow them, things will never be the same again.
You'll laugh...you'll cry...and once you meet Dennis, he'll live with you forever.
