We review Charlie Higson's new book Worst.Holiday.Ever
I really liked the title and the cover of the book to start with, so I was extremely excited to read it. I tried to imagine what could happen to Stan on his holiday before starting to read, but I could not have imagined how bad his holiday would be!
It was easy to read and hilarious and I thought of it as a mix of David Walliams and Diary of a Wimpy Kids. I really hope there will be further adventures of Stan that I can read soon. My dad likes Charlie Higson from his TV shows so I was warned it would be a funny read.
The book is about Stan who is very pessimistic and likes to make a duck-it lists rather than a bucket list and makes 30 reasons not to go on holiday. But disaster strikes!
Stan must go on holiday with his (fifth) best friend and a bunch of strangers. Will this turn out to be horrible or will he come back as a different person.
This is a hilarious book for probably over 9 years because it can be slightly inappropriate. However, this book is perfect for all people, especially shy people and people who don't want to try something different.
Definately a book to ask mum/dad to buy for summer reading or like Stan to take with you on holiday.
Stan is going on holiday to Italy with his (fifth) best friend Felix and a load of strangers. Stan is absolutely terrified.
Luckily, his mum's given him an emergency list that includes how to survive a shark attack, and what to do if he gets kidnapped.
Stan thinks that a better list would include how to cope with odd food, and what to do if he accidentally calls Felix's mum 'mum' in front of everybody.
And it soon turns out Italy is full of dangers and things that can go wrong.
One thing is for certain, Stan's not going to come back the same boy he left. He just hopes he comes back at all . . .
