HarperCollins Children’s Books has published a new David Walliams title, The World’s Worst Children, supercharging the market and changing the landscape of this spring and summer for book retailers everywhere.

The bonus book will delight Walliams’ millions of fans who no longer have to wait until September for a new title. HarperCollins have published The World’s Worst Children at top speed, with fans across the globe able to enjoy this additional full-colour gift hardback ahead of his scheduled autumn novel.

A wickedly funny and wonderfully surreal collection of ten stories about ten delightfully dreadful children, The World’s Worst Children is David Walliams’ unique take on the classic cautionary tale. This momentous new addition to the David Walliams canon is illustrated in spectacular technicolour by the inimitable Tony Ross and published in a glorious hardback gift edition. The collection is also available in e-book and audio, with the story hilariously performed by the author himself.
Are you ready to meet the World’s Worst Children? From Dribbling Drew – a boy whose drool gets him into terrible trouble – to Sofia Sofa – a TV super-fan so stuck to the sofa that she’s turning into one! – the uproariously funny cast of characters will delight David Walliams’ readers.

As an extra special treat, fan favourite Raj even makes a hilarious appearance!
