The story line and the illustrations have a similar feel but where it all falls short is that Roald Dahl makes kids feel like adults with mature prose whereas this definitely reads like a children’s book.
In addition, I found some of the plot to be too unrealistic in an unexciting way. For instance, no kid is going to believe that a mobility scooter went onto the motorway, or that they pulled off their attempt at stealing the crown jewels all in one night or even that they got into Tower Bridge with almost no obstacle, everything was all plain sailing.
I won’t be too harsh. It’s easy reading, has a feel good factor and a few important life lessons such as the importance of treating older people with appreciation and respect. I would happily recommend this for those under eight years old.
