David Walliams, Code Name: Bananas, A New Whizz-Bang Epic Adventure!

Code Name Bananas is a whizz-bang epic action adventure for all the family!

1940. Britain is at war with Germany. As bombs rain down on the city, orphan boy Eric forms an extraordinary friendship with a remarkable gorilla: Gertrude. Eric spends his days at the place that makes him most happy: London Zoo. But when the zoo is no longer safe Eric must go on an epic adventure to rescue Gertrude. Together with his Uncle Sid, a keeper at the zoo, the three go on the run. But while hiding out at the seaside they uncover a top-secret plot . . . escape the clutches of evil villains . . . and in the end they save the day!

David Walliams said, “This book is an epic comedy adventure set in World War II with an animal at the centre of the story. I hope children will fall in love with Gertrude the gorilla. There is plenty of humour, action and excitement to delight even the most reluctant reader.”

A must-have gift for David Walliams’s readers, Code Name Bananas is a rip-roaring, action packed, page-turning adventure to capture the imaginations of children across the globe. Code Name Bananas can be ordered here.
