About the Book

Ten cautionary tales and a delightfully dreadful cast of characters from number one bestselling author David Walliams!

Are you ready to meet the world’s worst children? Five beastly boys and five gruesome girls!

Like Sofia Sofa, a TV superfan so stuck to the sofa that she’s turning into one! And Blubbering Bertha, a bawling big sister with a horrid habit of telling tales!

From number one bestselling author David Walliams comes this collection of deliciously mischievous tales, illustrated throughout by artistic genius Tony Ross.

Critical Praise

<b>Praise for<i> The World’s Worst Children</i>:</b>

"'I loved it because it's so funny I laughed my head off!" Ben, aged 8

"A positively gruesome book" <i>Guardian</i>

“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”<i> Daily Mail</i>

“Laugh-out-loud funny and…downright disgusting” <i>Daily Express</i>

“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” <i>Independent</i>
