The wonderful world of Walliams

Often described as the next Roald Dahl, fans of David Walliams will know he didn't start off as a best-selling author, but instead won over audiences with his talented work in comedy, screen and stage. Since then, Walliams has become one of our best-loved children's authors, writing hilarious stories featuring some of the kookiest characters in print.

From heart-warming stories about a father and son in Bad Dad to the screamingly funny tale of the Demon Dentist, Walliams cleverly combines lighthearted fun with a touch of sensitivity for the perfect read. On top of his novels, Walliams has also published a number of picture books, including Boogie Bear, illustrated by the artistic genius that is Tony Ross.
