I know this is meant to be a children's book, but when I stared reading, just to check it was suitable, I couldn't stop. And I am most definitely adult. Sorry kids, my turn first. This book made me laugh a lot, the humour is so original. I challenge anyone to resist Duke, the most irritating, fascinating talking animal I've ever encountered. Plus being the fattest. Elias Zapple has a wild imagination and he doesn't hold back. Michel and the constantly annoying, but strangely lovable, Duke travel along the corridor searching for three year old Romain. They meet some characters who should become classics. Including the dreadful Master and his sidekick Mr Flagstad. A must for lovers of flying desks and skateboarding.
Warning: Romain has a runny nose. Those with an aversion to snot, step away now.
