Set during World War Two, Walliams takes us back in time to 1940's Britain and the Blitz. There we meet eleven year old Eric who loves spending time with zookeeper Uncle Sid and the animals at London Zoo. He loves all the animals, but he has a special bond with his favourite, Gertrude the gorilla.
As Nazi bombs fall, Eric realises his friend needs saving and rescues Gertrude from the zoo with help from Uncle Sid. The three of them hide out at the seaside, but soon they stumble upon a top-secret Nazi plot that will require all their wits and bravery to stop.
Filled with wonderful illustrations by Tony Ross and the magical storytelling that never fails to leave little ones flushed with adventure.
Join David Walliams on this action-packed, laugh-out-loud adventure for all the family!
