David Walliams

The senior classes were delighted to have a zoom call with David Walliams today. It certainly inspired our talented readers and writers.  David Walliams  is an English comedian, actor, writer, and television personality. Multi-talented, he is also a very well-known writer of children’s books, having sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. In 2008 David published his first children’s book ‘The Boy in the Dress’, illustrated by Sir Quentin Blake selling over one million copies. Since then, he has published 29 further books, including 9 picture books.

A series of best-selling books have followed, many of which have been staged or televised, such as ‘Mr Stink’, ‘Gangsta Granny’, ’The Boy in the Dress’ and ‘Grandpa’s Great Escape’. So far his books have been translated into 53 languages and have sold over 40 million copies worldwide. We have many of his books in the library.

We were delighted when he read all about Windy Mindy from The World’s Worst Children!
