The World's Worst Children

“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
Charles Dickens


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.

A wickedly funny and wonderfully surreal collection of ten stories about ten delightfully dreadful children (in each book), 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.


Let us introduce you to The World's Worst Children. One author, three books, thirty stories, fantastic artwork, and endless laughter. Take your ticket to the first row of this comedic series of books.

Each book contains ten stories about the world's worst children. We have Peter Picker – that does not need a further introduction, Tandy and her titanic tantrums, Blubbering Bertha – a girl who bawls and tells terrible tales and much more!

These stories will make reading fun, not only for your children but also for you!

The author David Walliams and illustrator Tony Ross work closely together combining their creativity and storytelling skills to make this unforgettable collection of stories. Each illustration brings the stories to life and works flawlessly with the dynamic typefaces designed to engage the reader. These books are organized chaos, full of a child's sense of humour, fun and of course - devilment!
