Description

A new collection of short stories from the UK’s biggest-selling author – David Walliams.

David Walliams’ inventive take on the cautionary tale began in 2016 with the publication of The World’s Worst Children. Two further volumes followed in 2017 and 2018 with total sales of the trilogy now exceeding 1.7 million copies in the UK alone.
Walliams now turns his attention to teachers in
these ten tales of the most gruesome grown-ups
ever. Think your teachers are bad? Wait till you
meet this lot. These tales of the world’s most splendidly sinister teachers will have you running for the school gates. Dr Dread teaches Science and is half man, half monster. Mrs Splatt, the dinner lady, serves the most revolting food you could possibly imagine. Miss Seethe is ALWAYS furious – and she’s on a detention rampage...
Every story will be illustrated in glorious colour by artistic genius Tony Ross.

Review quote

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
