Publisher's Summary

The hotly anticipated next novel from number-one best-selling author David Walliams, with audio hilariously read by the author himself!
Jack's Grandpa wears his slippers to the supermarket, serves up Spam à la Custard for dinner, and often doesn't remember Jack's name. But he can still take to the skies in a speeding Spitfire and save the day....
An exquisite portrait of the bond between a small boy and his beloved Grandpa - this book takes readers on an incredible journey with Spitfires over London and great escapes through the city in a high-octane adventure full of comedy and heart.

Enjoyed it

My 10 year old son & I listened to this together. It's charming. Very long & a bit slow at times. Worth listening through until the end.
