David Walliams has taken the children’s literary world by storm. He is the biggest UK children’s author to debut this century – his books have been translated into forty languages and have sold over four million copies in the UK alone.
Mr Stink and Gangsta Granny have both been successfully adapted for TV – with The Boy in the Dress and Billionaire Boy arriving on screens at Christmas 2014 and 2015 respectively. David’s debut picture book, The Slightly Annoying Elephant, also went straight to number one in the Picture Book chart and was the bestselling hardback picture book of 2013.
Both Ratburger and Demon Dentist won the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year. It comes as no surprise that countless reviewers have compared him to his all-time hero, Roald Dahl.
