David Walliams' books are some of the funniest written for children in recent years. Praised as 'the new Roald Dahl', David Walliams books, are full of laugh-out-loud humour and naughty behaviour. His books are typically enjoyed and read by children aged 7 to 12, but also have wider appeal! David Walliam's books are as follows:

  • GRANDPA'S GREAT ESCAPE - Jack and his grandpa are about to set off on the greatest adventure yet!
  • AWFUL AUNTIE - A heartfelt but hilarious hoot of an adventure about Stella and her awful Aunt Alberta!
  • Billionaire Boy - A touching and extraordinary novel about a boy who has everything...apart from friends!
  • The Boy in the Dress - David's brilliant first novel about a boy who isn't afraid to be different!
  • Demon Dentist - The jaw-achingly funny novel about a boy with a big heart and an even bigger fear of the dentist!
  • Gangsta Granny - A hilarious and heartfelt story of old age, adventure, stolen jewels and swimming the Thames
  • Mr Stink - The fun-filled novel about a friendship between Chloe and Mr Stink, the local tramp!
  • Ratburger - The screamingly funny novel about a little girl called Zoe and the evil Burt the burger man who is after her pet rat!
