As much as I agree this is wholesome and sweet , it doesn’t have the charm of his initial books , I’ve already noticed a shift in the writing style and the illustrator , but I wanted to complete all of his work , atleast at the time I discovered him and I’m glad it’s all off my tbr.All of these elements are perfect for Middle-Grade readers and entertaining for us older readers as well. His books have now been translated into 40+ languages, and also include picture books illustrated by Tony Ross. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. The pacing picked up but instead of feeling intense and dramatic it felt rushed, which is something I’m not used to in a David Walliams novel.

Bedlam, once a home to ordinary people, is now a city infested with rats and is as dangerous as it is filthy. The action begins early, even if it’s slapstick and silly, the tension builds as Robodog chases villains, supervillains are chasing dogs, and the Chief and her wife the Professor are caught up in the middle. I loved that Plank was so silly, I think if Plank could get a medal for anything it would be for being silly.

I loved some of the comedy strip style in this one and whilst there was some scatalogical humour, (which I personally can't stand) there was less of it in this book.

Fun story for kids about a Police Chief and Professor who are married and decide to create a RoboDog to help with the problems in Bedlam. I loved seeing elements of the story highlighted by the illustrations, especially the wacky characters. David Walliams is a very popular children's author in the UK but I've been avoiding his much-lauded books because a) I've never found his brand of humour particularly funny, and b) I read his picture book The Slightly Annoying Elephant to my kids and none of us rated it.The chief decides she wants a dog that can do every task which leads to the professor creating a "Robodog" out of old washing machine parts, kinda like Frankenstein's monster.
