Reviews from Around the World "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!."— Michael Finocchiaro, Goodreads
"I was told I had to read this book to my class by my 9 year old nephew. I took his advice. I found the book to be a little 'corny' at times but my class LOVES it. They have been laughing out loud. I teach 4th grade by the way. We aren't finished yet so I can't tell you how we'll like the ending but I will definitely be reading it every year!"— Kimberly Scheuring, Amazon
