David Walliams has revolutionised reading for children and has become one of the most influential children’s writers today. Since the publication of The Boy in the Dress (2008), Walliams has seen unprecedented growth with global sales exceeding 45 million copies, and his books translated into 55 languages.
Collectively across his titles, David has celebrated over 67 weeks (non-consecutive) at number one in the overall UK book charts and more than 190 weeks (non-consecutive) at number one in the overall UK children’s charts – an achievement no other children’s writer has reached. The series features designs taken from some of these best-selling books which are known the world over and a fitting tribute to an author who celebrated his 50th Birthday this year. From his first book The Boy in the Dress to the latest release Slime which was his fourteenth book, every novel has explored themes that are not necessarily tackled by other authors. His books have become so exceptionally popular that his readers eagerly await every new release. David Walliams novels have earned him several well-deserved awards over the years. The series will feature the following novels: The Boy in the Dress, Mr Stink, Billionaire Boy, Gangsta Granny, Ratburger, Awful Auntie and Grandpa’s Great Escape.
