    1. If there is a trend to be spotted amongst the celebrity children s books being released these days then I think it boils down to a general perception on their part that books for kids aren t subversive enough This is a bit of a change of pace from the days when Madonna would go about claiming there weren t any good books for kids out there Celebrities are a bit savvier on that count, possibly because the sheer number of books they publish has leapt with every passing year Now their focus has cha [...]


    2. Ok, two things we need to get straight before we start this is NOT for children and it s not going to be to everyone s taste Brand is essentially telling a tale to ya adults AS IF they re children And I wholly believe that was the purpose We re told the age old tale of the Pied Piper, with a huge dose of social commentary Sexism, elitism, greed, bullying, sexuality, prejudice against disability, the homeless and anyone who dresses differently AND some digs at the rich and the recession, all squi [...]


    3. Jos Chris Riddell tulisi Suomeen, menisin makuupussissa hotellin eteen, lahjoisin itseni sis n, piiloutuisin sen huoneeseen, odottaisin y t , hiipisin s ngyn viereen, tarjoaisin skumppaa ja valmiiksi lasketun porekylvyn ja pyyt isin sit piirt m n Pillipiiparin Ei ole sen hottiksempaa nuortenkirjallisuudessa ollut eik tule Ai niin, se arvostelu Mahtava On jakanut lukijoita kuin viikate viljapeltoa, mutta mut saa pist fanien joukkoon Satumodaukset on kyll onnistuessaan ihan parhautta


    4. This book was incredibly silly Full of toilet humor and other words that kids like to laugh at like the word fart, and boogies My favorite two words were bum custard It s totally gross and I laughed out loud I gave this re telling of the Pied Piper 3.5 stars.The illustrations by Chris Riddell were the best Loved all the bright colors The story was good too in a silly and gross way If you have read or heard about the Pied Piper this book has the essence of that fairy tale or legend The pied piper [...]


    5. RUSSELL BRAND SHOULD READ EVERY AUDIOBOOK EVER.This should have been popular than it is because it is honestly perfect I can not fault this book at all It has the perfect about of kid bum jokes and adult humour and trite satirical commentary.Amazing book, amazing audiobook All around the best yes.

    8. Review berbahasa inggris udah banyak jadi kukasih yang berbahasa Indonesia aja Alamak buku ini kocak banget Dengan bahasanya yang sarkastis dan sinis, rasanya nggak cocok buat anak anak hahaha tapi cocok buat sayaaaaa Ceritanya sih seperti cerita Pied Piper pada umumnya dengan moral story ciri khas buku anak Ilustrasi Riddell tetep juara dan cocok banget dengan gaya nulis Russel Brand Btw, iya lho ini Russel Brand yang itu, yang seleb itu Buku ini juga mungkin gak cocok buat semua kalangan karen [...]


    9. Really clever and witty Great story Kinda hilarious The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous Too much toilet humour for my liking But it s so Russel Brand If you don t like his humour or whatever, you probably won t like this book It looks like a children s book, but it definitely isn t for children It is basically the story of the Pied Piper with some adult opinions and social commentary thrown in I really liked it It jumped around a bit it felt like pages were missing but that wasn t the case [...]


    10. I think actual kids will like this than I did It was entertaining and funny at points, but there are too many poop jokes for even me But, as evidenced by Captain Underpants, kids love irreverent humor and so will probably be highly entertained The piper himself looks and sounds a bit like Brand himself, but I suppose and author reserves the right to do things like that Points for making big vocab words fun Maybe that will eventually get it a high rank for things like AR and Lexile.


    11. Meravigliose come sempre le illustrazioni di Chris Riddell, che fanno durare la lettura pi del dovuto tanto rimani incantato a guardarle e potete immaginare quindi quanto mi costi lasciare solo tre stelline a un libro con dentro i suoi disegni Ma questa volta non posso farne a meno, perch per il resto per il resto c troppa cacca Letteralmente.


    12. Vanhan sadun painajaismaiset uudet vaatteet.Russel Brand ja Chris Riddell tuovat vanhan tutun pillipiiparisadun ll tt v n uuteen muotoon ja nykyaikaan Tarinan kaikki hahmot asuvat inhottavassa, maireassa pikkukaupungissa Ajattelin ensin lukea t m n kuvakirjan lapseni kanssa, mutta kansien sis ll oli liian rajua kamaa ja pienempi lukija valitsi toisen kirjan Luin tarinan loppuun yksin Luulen, ett t m kirja toimii paremmin itse luettuna kuin jonkun muun neen lukemana Vaikeat termit on selvitetty v [...]


    13. Loved this short but entertaining fairytale of sorts It reads like you re watching a Russell Brand interview fast paced and no full stops lol A great overall message, lots of British slang but there s a glossary to help ya out Quick and entertaining read, loved the illustrations and there s a rat attack


    14. Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.I have admired the hardback of The Pied Piper of Hamelin by Russell Brand, illustrated by Chris Riddell from afar for quite a while Having read and loved The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman, another fairy tale retelling that Riddell illustrated, I was really intrigued to see what he would do with this interpretation, too However, I must admit, that I wasn t sure how seriously Brand would take retelling a fairy tale, so I ve always been a bit wary [...]


    15. Luimme t m n kirjan yhdess lasteni kanssa tytt 8 vuotta ja poika 6 vuotta Odotin t lt kirjalta melkoisen suuria, kun t m n luvattiin rikkovan lastenkirjallisuuden rajoja Roald Dahlin tyyliin kkiselt n katsottuna kirjan kuvitukset her ttiv t niin lasten kuin minunkin kiinnostukseni, ovat ne sen verran ratkiriemukkaan irvokkaita.En oikein osaa sanoa, mit mielt kirjan juonesta olen, sill se on v lill melko sekamelskainen ja omituinen Tarinahan on kirjoitettu uusiksi samannimisest saksalaisesta kans [...]


    16. Let s see I ve come to appreciate Russell Brand lately, I think Chris Riddell is a good artist, the Pied Piper was one of my favourite fairy tales when I was a kid and I have even been to Hamelin or Hameln as it s actually called.Good reasons for picking up The Pied Piper of Hamelin Russell Brand s Trickster Tales, right I wish I hadn t The writing which is not suitable for children, as even those who like this book agree leaves a lot to be desired Brand s additions to the tale are all wrong Tha [...]


    17. Olipa mahtis kirja Ja hetkinen meni tajuta, ett sadun oli tosiaan uudelleen kirjoitellut Russel Brand Vaikka siis siin h n se seisoo kirjan kannessa, ett n in on Englanti kuulsi kieless l pi, mik on ik v ja siksip olisi kirja mielest ni toiminut paljon paremmin alkuper iskielell Hienoja syv llisi mietteit ripoteltu sinne t nne, me likey Siksi nelj t hte.


    18. This is a picture book for adults, which is just awesome If anyone looks at this as a children s picture book you will think it is crude and inappropriate, but it is not It allows adults to be kids again without it being so kiddy.


    19. Not too impressed by this It s obvious with its agenda and I just didn t feel anything for it Two of the three stars I gave it are for Chris Riddell s wonderful, as always, illustrations Full review to come.


    20. V kin inen poliittinen sanoma ja omaan makuuni turhan paljon ulostevitsej Chris Riddellin kuvituksesta ja androgyynist glampiiparista tykk sin.


    21. One and a half stars for the writing,gross events and toilet humour.4 stars for the artwork.Chris Riddell is wonderful.Russell Brand is not wonderful.


    22. Loved it Illustrations are amazing Read in my mind in Russell Brand s voice Funny and subversive Lots of poo jokes.


    23. First, I want to say that it s not really for children Maybe by changing the story a bit and not showing some pictures I enjoyed reading this book despite the fact that my English is terribly bad However, I found the story difficult to read sometimes because Russell Brand invents words and already I have difficulty with my English, it doesn t help me I liked the drawings made for this book They were attractives and invited to read .Premi rement, je tiens dire que ce n est pas n cessairement fait [...]


    24. Versione modernizzata del racconto del pifferaio magico di Hamelin che libera la citt dai topi e poi, quando non viene pagato, porta via i bambini Il racconto e rimane veramente inquietante, una specie di horror soft, ma senza sangue e, nonostante questo, da brivido Forse la sensazione di paura persiste anche perch l autore si rivolge direttamente ai lettori un libro per bambini, per altro splendidamente illustrato non dando spiegazioni del comportamento del pifferaio, ma invitandoli a ragionare [...]


    25. It was such a pain to read I used to be a huge Russell Brand fan and I have almost all his books but this one was basically copying the narration style of the series of unfortunate events which I love but it was not as good The art style was ok the story was a mess Maybe kids like it but I didn t


    26. Ok let s get this straight when I saw this in a charity shop for 50p and Chris Riddell had illustrated it I had to have it.Definetly a retelling of the Pied Piper of Hamelin to to an ya audience.I don t think I would have pricked this up if it hadn t have been for Riddell s illustrations.


    27. The writing is interesting at times but the saving grace of this book is of course Chris Riddell Added because of riddell.



    28. I had a GREAT time reading this Not for children.well maybe mature children Lotta poop Couple of curse words Riddell is wonderful, as usual Brand s voice is perf.


    29. A brilliant and witty story, which could only be read in the voice of Russell Brand As always Chris Riddell s illustrations made the story even better too.
