Reviews


  • PRAISE FOR THE WORLD’S WORST CHILDREN:
  • “This really is Walliams at his most indulgently gross and silly – the perfect combination for thousands of his loyal fans… stunningly illustrated by Ross who captures the energy and chaos of the stories.” – Daily Mail
  • “Laugh-out-loud funny and…downright disgusting” – Daily Express
  • “Often described as the modern-day Roald Dahl, Walliams is a big author with big ideas and plenty of illustrations, all combining to make for real page-turners, even for kids who would normally look at you as if you’re mad to suggest reading for pleasure.” – The Independent
