Dennis the Menace’s Reading List

Dennis the Menace (c) D.C. Thomson & Co Ltd. 2016

Reading is awesome! Did you know that the word “hobbledehog” means a rude boy? I did because I read about it – on my school report card! Also, books are the ultimate place to find some amazing ideas to try out on my next adventure and some have seriously funny stories in them! My favourite things to read are comics – especially The Beano! There’s no better or funnier way to enjoy reading!

The World’s Worst Children - David Walliams

I liked this book because it was all short stories so you can read a whole story in one go. And some of the stories are pretty gross too – which I love! The title made me want to pick it up straight away as it sounds just like me!

My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish : Jurassic Carp - Mo O’Hara

I’ve chosen this book as it reminds me of all the bonkers adventures me and Gnasher get up to together. I also really love the little illustrations in the corner of the pages that you can flick to make it move!

Diary of A Wimpy Kid : Double Down - Jeff Kinney

The main character, Greg reminds me of me! He knows he’s awesomely talented, he just needs to prove it to everyone else. He also has to deal with the same problems as me when things don’t go to plan. It’s never my fault!

The 78 Storey Treehouse - Andy Griffiths

I LOVE treehouses so knew I would love this book. I’ve got a treehouse of my own but it’s not as cool as the one in the story. It’s given me lots of ideas about what I can do to mine though - I totally need an open air movie theatre in mine too!

Timmy Failure: Sanitized For Your Protection - Stephan Pastis

I really enjoyed this book because I kind of felt sorry for the main character, Timmy. He reckons he’s a bit of a top investigator but actually, he’s a bit rubbish! The pictures in the book are really funny too and make it really easy to read – which I like!

The Diary of Dennis the Menace: Canine Carnage - Steven Butler

Well, what isn’t there to like about this book?! It’s about ME and MY adventures but Steven helped A BIT with stuff like spelling and things I’m not so good at. There are some pretty cool illustrations in it too ‘cos it makes books easier to read I think!

The Beano Annual 2017

It’s not even 2017 yet and already I’m laughing about it! I love that there are loads of different stories that you can pick and choose from. It’s such a funny book and the best way to enjoy reading if you don’t like loads and loads of words. Because there are brilliantly funny drawings in it too, it means kids like my little sister, Bea can enjoy it!
