One of our favourite children's authors is David Walliams. In fact, we have the whole collection and my absolute favourite is "Billionaire Boy" whereas Beansy loves "Gangsta Granny". A few years ago, we we given "The boy in a dress"and "Stink" as a birthday present and our love affair with all things Walliams began.
The books have captured the imagination of Beansy as they are sensitively written but incredibly funny whilst still having a great story line.
We are not the only uber fans, as each week, 20,000 copies* (source: Bookscan 2012) on average are sold in the UK alone making David Walliams one of the fastest growing children's authors in the UK. When "Gangsta Granny" was released, it went straight to the top of the children's book charts and his books have been translated into new fewer than 25 languages worldwide.
Now that my friends, is impressive no?
