David Walliams' New Book
David Walliams' new book The World's Worst Children 3 published in May 2018. Like the previous two titles, it's an hilarious collection of 10 stories about the most gruesome, horrible children.

Walliams' latest full length novel, Bad Dad came out in November 2017. This was David's 10th book and as with many of his other books, it was illustrated by the brilliant Tony Ross. But this year (2018), to celebrate 10 years of writing books, there are also two gorgeous anniversary editions of Mr Stink and Gangsta Granny. These two limited-edition new hardback versions are illustrated in glorious full colour with an introduction from the author.

Our favourite David Walliams Book Quotes
“Adults always ask kids how they are doing at school. The one subject kids absolutely hate talking about. You don’t even want to talk about school when you are at school” (Gangsta Granny)

“It’s strange how sometimes you can be so happy it goes all the way round to sadness” (Billionaire Boy)

“Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it is correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well. He was the stinkiest, stinky stinker who ever lived.
A stink is the worst type of smell. A stink is worse than a stench. And a stench is worse than a pong. And a pong is worse than a whiff. And a whiff can be enough to make your nose wrinkle” (Mr Stink)
