David Walliams Billionnaire Boy Puzzle Review and Competition

What a week! It was our first week back at school after the half term and Monday saw an inset day. We were looking forward to World Book Day and had discussed at length options and planned costumes for the celebrations at school. However, the weather had other ideas, after a shed load of snow, Thursday and Friday became non school days and World Book Day Celebrations were postponed.

I love World Book Day and what it has done for promoting reading in children. I believe in the importance of reading and have shared books with my two since the day they were born. As my son got a little older he became a reluctant reader, he still had the love of books but almost became scared to read them.

We have come through that now and he always has his nose in a book. Things like World Book Day have helped with this as it helped him hear about what his friends are reading and discover new books, comics and other things with words!

So, my Thursday came and although there was no school my two little book worms were determined for the Book day fun to not be postponed though. After a little play in the garden and getting really cold we were confined to the house, but we weren’t going to be bored!

We were lucky enough to be sent a puzzle with a book theme to have a go with and tell you what we think! Photo 01-03-2018, 11 54 35This puzzle depicts Billionaire Boy from the fantastic world of David Walliams and I have to share, we are already massive fans of David and his books! Mouse is the biggest puzzle fan in the house, so I was surprised when it was Monkey who completed this first, he said he was just going to start it but enjoyed it so much that he just kept going. Photo 01-03-2018, 15 13 13

There is 250 pieces, the pieces are a good size and are not too thin (something I have found with other puzzles aimed at children – there get torn far too easily). The picture is awesome, showing both pictures and quotes, it was great to see Monkey (and later Mouse) reading the quotes as they completed each one – a perfect activity for World Book Day!Photo 02-03-2018, 15 29 57

The puzzle is from a lovely range from Paul Lamond and there are other David Walliams Book puzzles available too; Gansta Granny, The boy in a dress and Mr Stink. Would we recommend this for others, well that is a big yes!! Both Monkey and Mouse have said that they think their friends would love it and say that they would love to own the others in the series too.Photo 02-03-2018, 15 29 41
