Description

FIVE hilarious and moving novels from bestselling, critically acclaimed author, David Walliams.


THE BOY IN THE DRESS:
Dennis was different.
Why was he different, you ask?
Well, a small clue might be in the title of this book...


MR STINK:
Mr Stink stank. He also stunk.
And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well...


BILLIONAIRE BOY:
Joe has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact.
He has absolutely everything he could possibly want.
But there's just one thing he really needs: a friend...


GANGSTA GRANNY:
Ben's grandma is the boringest grandma ever: all she wants to do is to play Scrabble and eat cabbage soup. But there are two things Ben doesn't know about her.


1) She was once an international jewel thief.
2) All her life, she has been plotting to steal the crown jewels, and now she needs Ben's help...


RATBURGER:
Can Zoe keep her beloved pet rat safe from the clutches of the dastardly Burt of Burt's Burgers?

About David Walliams

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 50 languages, selling more than 22 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.


David and Tony have worked on six bestselling picture books together, as well as eight of David's phenomenally successful children's novels - BILLIONAIRE BOY, GANGSTA GRANNY, RATBURGER, DEMON DENTIST, AWFUL AUNTIE, GRANDPA'S GREAT ESCAPE, THE MIDNIGHT GANG and BAD DAD. David and Tony also collaborated on the 2017 World Book Day title, BLOB, and the two blockbuster short story collections, THE WORLD'S WORST CHILDREN and THE WORLD'S WORST CHILDREN 2.
