Laureate of mischief and Number One bestselling author David Walliams presents The World’s Worst Children, a collection of ten short stories about five beastly boys and five gruesome girls.
Meet TV super-fan, Sofia Sofa, so stuck to the sofa that she’s turning into one; Dribbling Drew, a boy whose drool gets him into trouble; and Blubbering Bertha, a girl who bawls and tells terrible tales. Plus expect an appearance from everyone’s favourite character: Raj!
The World’s Worst Children may be Walliams’ most devious, mischievous and devilishly delightful book yet.
David Walliams burst onto the Children’s Literature scene with his riotously funny and touching 2008 debut, The Boy in The Dress. Over the course of nine books, all of which have been runaway successes, he has proved himself not only as a writer of hilarious children’s books – but a writer with a keen-eye for absurdity and an enormous capacity for empathy. Three of his books – Mr Stink, Gangsta Granny and Billionaire Boy – have been transformed into wildly popular BBC adaptations.
