When Tom gets hit by a cricket ball and wakes up on a ward in the huge, ancient pile that is Lord Funt Hospital, it looks like he has entered a very scary place indeed.
The first person he meets when he opens his eyes is a terrifying-looking porter and soon after he meets the mean-spirited matron; Tom's prospects were not looking good.
Until, that is, he meets - and better yet, joins - the coolest gang there is: The Midnight Gang. The Midnight Gang are a group of young patients who wait until the rest of the hospital are asleep before they go on the hunt for adventures…
The fun, it would seem, has only just begun for Tom.
Since his 2008 debut runaway hit, The Boy in The Dress, David Walliams has become one of the nation’s best loved children's authors. Altogether, he has written nine hugely successful and uproariously funny children's books; three of which, Gangsta Granny Mr Stink, and Billionaire Boy, have been adapted into equally entertaining and successful BBC television productions. His keenly observed and hugely empathetic tales are true modern classics.
