This is a marvelous indirect portrayal of the innocence of life while growing up in England immediately after WW2 and later. You quickly get to like young Dennis, an unassuming boy who can't help finding himself in difficulty, then just when you wonder how he will get out of it, it gets worse! This is really funny, easy to read and full of nostalgia for anyone who grew up in this era, and even those who did not. I highly recommend this book for anyone with a sense of humor or needs cheering up..

Came across this book by chance, but glad I did. Lots of laughs, some sad bits, great characters. Truly enjoyable. Hope there is more of Dennis to come.

I was kindly sent a copy of this book by the author Stephen Ainley in return of an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book it made me laugh from start to finish, anything poor Dennis does always seems to end in disaster but somehow he always manages to look like the guy who saved the day. It's well written, it's heartwarming, sometimes sad but mainly the book is very comical. It also has a very strong message that no matter what anyone thinks, if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything. I highly recommend this to anyone who has links to the forces whether it be past or present because I can guarantee they will have encountered a Dennis Bisskit in their career! However it is also a book suitable for the whole family. You won't be dissappointed if you read it.
