As if Nigel Nitboy and Dribbling Drew weren’t horrid enough, David Walliams is about to unveil a whole new raft of children so horrible they had to have their own book. That’s right, make space on your bookshelf for The World’s Worst Children 2!

“I wrote the first collection of short stories with the reluctant reader in mind. I wanted to create a book that would be very friendly for children whatever their reading ability, full of surreal humour and colourful illustrations from the great Tony Ross. This new book has all new characters and stories and I am thrilled to be unleashing these horrible children on the world.” David Walliams

The World’s Worst Children 2 welcomes another line-up of disgraceful children even more deliciously wicked than before! This stunning collection of cautionary tales will be published on 25th May 2017 in hardback, ebook, and even as an audiobook with the story uproariously read by David himself!
