David Walliams has delivered yet another charming middle grade book. Set in a hospital, The Midnight Gang follows the children from the children’s ward as they go on a series of adventures. Walliams has created a book that is both incredibly entertaining (with fantastic illustrations by Tony Ross) as well as reminding kids that it is important to treat everyone with respect. Walliams has been compared to the next Roald Dahl and while I think no one will ever replace Dahl, I believe that he has carved out his own voice and place in the kidlit world. Don’t let the size of this book scare you. It’s an incredibly fast read.
