David Walliams RATBURGER - latest book and Worldwide Premiere!

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?

This Thursday is the WORLDWIDE PREMIERE LAUNCH of his new book "Ratburger" (loving the name already) which is about an uber villian called Burt.  He will surely go down in history as one of those characters that children love to hate and I am giving YOU the chance to be one of the first people to own this book.

  8. Joe from Billionaire Boy because although he is very spoilt he is also just a singularly unhappy 12 year old. He has
    everything except friends. That's something we can all relate to at one time or another

    My daughter loves all David Walliams' books and says that Granny in Gangsta Granny is her favourite character because you think she's an innocent Gran but she's not - she's a gangsta!
