This book is David Walliams' best book ever! The characters are all brilliant. My favourite is Tootsie, the food trolley lady in the hospital. She knows Tom likes Cornflakes so she saved one single flake for him! The very old lady flying in the sky with the helium balloons is hilarious. I read the book in one day - you won't be able to put it down.

I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to children ages 9+. It is about a boy called Tom, who gt hit in the head with a cricket ball. He goes to this strange hospital, thinking that it would be a dump but it turns out to be an adventure. In this hospital there was 4 more children, Amber, a girl in a wheelchair who broke both her arms and legs. Then there was a boy called Robin, who couldn't see at all. Next thee was a boy called George, who was very fat and had to get his tonsils taken out. There is another girl (probably my favourite GIRL!) called Sally, Sally had a illness (I was guessing Cancer as she was bold) and nobody talked to her, even though she was the sweetest kindest girl in the ward. On his first day, Tom could see George stuffing his mouth with chocolate (to get the Matron's attention) the Matron came and took ALL the chocolates and eat it. But the funny thing is George was eating the ones which HADN'T had sleep potion in. Matron ended up falling into a deep, deep sleep. The three children crept off as soon as she fell asleep. Tom got up to follow them but Sally stopped him and begged him to bring her. Tom refused her but promised to tell her all about it. Next whilst Tom was following them he had to do loads of things for them in order to join their gang, and then he was told about ALL the secrets. There was a porter, HE DIDN'T HAVE A NAME HE WAS JUST CALLED PORTER THE NAME OF HIS JOB!!!, anyway the porter was in on this too, he LOVED seeing children smile and laugh. Every midnight they would go into this room, have fun, and grant wishes. So one day Robin wanted to lead an orchestrate so they got instruments and started playing it. Tom was now part of the gang, the midnight gang, nobody knew who made up the midnight gang, it was just there on a wall, and people were going there for years. At the end, I found out that , Porter had made the midnight gang. When they returned back in the children's ward, Sally was asking Tom to tell her all about the midnight gang, but Tom couldn't. He had promised to keep it all a secret, and in order to do that he had to lie saying he HADN'T promised when he HAD. The next wish was George's turn, George wanted to fly, so they got ALL the balloons from the WHOLE hospital but then they accidentally make this 99 year old lady fly. (This lady, Nelly, thought she was still a 10 year old girl when actually in real life she was 10 times that age.) After the flying situation, Porter gets sacked on the spot, and all the children have a close eye on them. Tom's school headmaster had come to collect Tom back, as he had fully recovered, but then once again, Tom Escapes, knowing that this might be the last time Tom ever comes to the hospital, he decides to give his wish to Sally. Sally wanted to have her first kiss, her first marriage etc....etc.. So they decide to give her wish, they get sleeping serum and stick it in Matron's bum, to keep her out the way, and get the plan started. At the end Sally is so happy, and the WHOLE o the hospital doctors watch them, everyone is so proud, but Amber takes ALL the credit. Porter gets his job back but the hospital head master is HORRIFIED when he finds out that Porter doesn't have a name. Porter decides to name him self Thomas, the same name as Tom's. Tom ends up leaving the hospital and his AWFUL school.

I think it is really nice because the children in hospital go to adventures in the midnight and makes you curious about what they are going to do. The children also have good reasons to be in the hospital because of their illnesses.

A lovely book for mostly medium readers. It is about a boy who is staying in a hospital. He and some other children go on lots of adventures with the porter trying to make each other's dreams come true. I highly recommend this book to both boys and girls.Read it!
