Walliams 'cautionary tales' out from HCCB in May

Walliams 'cautionary tales' out from HCCB in May

 March 22, 2016 by Charlotte Eyre - The Bookseller

HarperCollins Children’s Books will this May publish a new book by David Walliams, entitled The World’s Worst Children.

The book, illustrated in colour by Walliams’ long-time collaborator Tony Ross, is Walliams’ “unique take on the classic cautionary tale”, according to HarperCollins, with short stories featuring characters such as Dribbling Drew, a boy whose drool gets him into trouble, and Sofia Sofa, a TV super-fan who spends so much time on the sofa she’s turning into one.

“I loved writing this collection of stories, as I left my imagination run completely wild,” said Walliams. “There is huge emphasis on surreal humour in this book. I hope children around the world will enjoy it, even the most reluctant reader.”
