PRAISE FOR THE WORLD’S WORST CHILDREN:
“This really is Walliams at his most indulgently gross and silly – the perfect combination for thousands of his loyal fans… stunningly illustrated by Ross who captures the energy and chaos of the stories.” – Daily Mail
“Laugh-out-loud funny and…downright disgusting” – Daily Express
“Often described as the modern-day Roald Dahl, Walliams is a big author with big ideas and plenty of illustrations, all combining to make for real page-turners, even for kids who would normally look at you as if you’re mad to suggest reading for pleasure.” – The Independent
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.
Born in London, Tony Ross went to art school in Liverpool. His cartoons have appeared in famous publications the world over. His first book, HUGO AND THE WICKED WINTER, was published in 1972. Tony has since written over 100 books and illustrated over 2000! His creations Towser and The Little Princess have been turned into TV series.

One thing worth mentioning is the hardback. Again, beautiful and generous illustrations on almost every page, all worked into the story in sometimes a comic book feel that brings the story telling vividly to life without taking over from the actual reading.
The dust jackets on our books always get lost, but the hardback without dust jacket is equally attractive on David Walliams books. I always take it off to look at the pictures.
Setting a hugely high bar for creativity, tapping into what kids love, and longevity. David Walliams might not be the "Best" kids author ever, but pretty much everything he writes is SO accessible to girls and boys of a wide range of ages. Who else is guaranteed an annual Xmas dramatisation each year.
Let's face it, Walliams' books are never going to be examples of well-written children's literature but children, especially those in the 8-14 age bracket, absolutely love them so he's obviously doing something right.
