Description of this Book

The brilliant follow-up to David Walliams' bestseller The World's Worst Children! Ten more stories about a brand new gang of hilariously horrible kids from everyone's favourite children's author, illustrated in glorious full colour by Tony Ross. If you thought you had read about the World's Worst Children already, you're in for a rather nasty shock. The beastly boys and gruesome girls in this book are even ruder, even more disgusting and WORSE than you could ever imagine! This gorgeous collection of ten stories from the master himself, David Walliams, will make you snort with laughter and thank your lucky stars that you don't know anyone like Gruesome Griselda or Fussy Frankie in real life. It also features a special appearance from fan-favourite Raj! Gloriously illustrated in full colour throughout by artistic genius Tony Ross, The World's Worst Children 2 is a side-splitting companion to David's blockbuster hit, The World's Worst Children, and the perfect gift for kids aged 9 and up.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 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
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)

Author's Bio

David Walliams - comedian, actor and author - continues to take the children's literary world by storm. His ninth novel, THE MIDNIGHT GANG, was an immediate number one, and was the biggest-selling children's book of 2016. WORLD'S WORST CHILDREN 2, which published in early 2017, spent four weeks at industry number one and eight weeks at the top of the children's chart. They have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim - and RATBURGER, DEMON DENTIST and AWFUL AUNTIE have all won the National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year. David's books have now exceeded 100 non-consecutive weeks in the children's number-one spot, and have been translated into 50 languages, selling more than 20 million copies worldwide. Born in London, Tony Ross went to art school in Liverpool. His cartoons have appeared in famous publications the world over. His first book, HUGO AND THE WICKED WINTER, was published in 1972. Tony has since written over 100 books and illustrated over 2000! His creations Towser and The Little Princess have been turned into TV series. David and Tony have worked on four Number One bestselling picture books together, as well as seven of David's phenomenally successful children's novels - Billionaire Boy, Gangsta Granny, Ratburger, Demon Dentist, Awful Auntie, Grandpa's Great Escape and The Midnight Gang. David and Tony also collaborated on the 2017 World Book Day title, Blob, and the two blockbuster short story collections, The World's Worst Children and The World's Worst Children 2.
