I really like David Walliams because his books are funny and adventurous. Code Name Bananas is set in 1940, and it’s about a boy called Eric who is very poor and his favourite place to go after school is the zoo. His favourite animal is a gorilla called Gertrude. In this book, he and his great uncle Sid go on adventures as they try to save Sir Winston Churchill with Gertrude’s help. They need to stop an evil captain who wants to destroy the Prime Minister and the government.
This is my favourite book so far because I like books based on historical events.
