The new children's book from No. 1 bestselling author David Walliams - a deliciously daft Tall Story of a child who had everything, but still wanted more. Illustrated by artistic genius, Tony Ross.

Meet the Meeks!

Myrtle Meek has everything she could possibly want. But everything isn't enough. She wants more, more , MORE! When Myrtle declares she wants a FING, there's only one problem... What is a FING?
Mr and Mrs Meek will do anything to keep their darling daughter happy, even visit the spooky library vaults to delve into the dusty pages of the mysterious Monsterpedia . Their desperate quest leads to the depths of the jungliest jungle where the rarest creatures can be found. But will they ever find a FING?

An explosively funny, totally surreal Tall Story about two perfectly nice parents and their unbelievably monstrous daughter from the phenomenal bestselling author David Walliams.

If you like the series of the World's Worst Children then this book is for you.

Based around the family called the Meek's this book once again tells the story of two traumatised parents being dictated to by their daughter Myrtle. Another child who has everything she could ever want provided by her parents who are too scared to say no.

Myrtle has all she could ever want so decides she wants a 'Fing' neither her parents or I am sure Myrtle even knows what she wants. Desperate to meet their daughters latest demands they set about finding out what this 'Fing' is. Coming across a book entitled 'Monsterpedia' in the library that the parents both work they finally discover such a thing exists and Mr Meek sets upon his journey to find one in the deepest, darkest, jungliest, jungle. 

Will Myrtle get her Fing? What will be next? Read the book and find out!

This book is brilliant! My favourite David Walliams book so far. 
I love the unusual words David Walliams uses. I had to look up the word egregious in the dictionary and then I taught my head teacher what it meant. 
This book is about a very greedy girly called Myrtle and her librarian parents Mr and Mrs Meek. They always give Myrtle what she wants and she’s really really horrible and does really naughty things to punish them. 
One day she decides she wants a Fing, her mum and dad spend a long time looking for what a Fing is. Dad sets off on an Epic journey to the deepest darkest jungliest jungle to find the Fing. The story gets funnier and funnier. 
I like the illustrations and the little funny foot notes. I think everyone will like this book,

This book is really good .The novel is so good I read it one day (as it was a page turner) I loved this book as it is about a girl who has everything but wants more, one more fing. So father aka Mr Meek sets off on a quest to find the forbidden fing. Earlier, before he set off he went underneath the library with his wife Mrs Meek and searched through every book to find out about fing and then they looked in the monsteropiedia and saw a fluffy ball with one eye and two holes one his bottom and the other his mouth the quest begins. I would recommend this to 6 to 12 year olds.
