About the Author

David Walliams – comedian, actor and author – continues to take the children's literary world by storm. His tenth novel, BAD DAD, was an immediate number one, following the triumph of THE MIDNIGHT GANG, the biggest-selling children's book of 2016. WORLD'S WORST CHILDREN 2, which published in early 2017, spent four weeks at industry number one and eight weeks at the top of the children's chart. They have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim – and RATBURGER, DEMON DENTIST and AWFUL AUNTIE have all won the National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year. David's books have now exceeded 100 non-consecutive weeks in the children's number-one spot, and have been translated into 53 languages, selling more than 32 million copies worldwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 March 2019
The author has overlooked the fact that several of the worst-children-ever reside in MY house. In those rare cases that these children bother to look up from their Ipads they refer to me as ‘dad’, usually followed by a demand for money or sweets.
So the book is incomplete at a minimum.

Take for example Juliet-the-Sloth; she leaves her rubbish everywhere throughout the house. Her clothes lie scattered on the floor and hallway for days. She bites nails, only brushes her teeth under immense pressure or in exceptional circumstances. And is happy to go without a shower for days in a row.

And why didn’t the book dedicate a chapter to Jonathan-the-wisecrack? – an annoying little chap that claims to know more about his favourite subjects (dinosaurs and Star Wars) than anyone else, he endlessly chats about these topics until your ears drop off. Worse, he is full of awful jokes; tends to run up to adults, grab them tightly only to .. start farting loudly.

So I got some first-hand experience with terrible cases myself. And I can tell you it’s not easy and very demanding. I'll be open to an interview with Mr Walliams when he is conducting research for his next book on this topic.
