HarperCollins Children’s Books has announced the publication The World Worst Children 2, a new collection from David Walliams. With illustrations by Tony Ross, it will publish in hardback on 25th May 2017.
David’s release of his first volume, The World’s Worst Children, held the industry No.1 slot for three weeks, and the children’s-chart No.1 slot for ten weeks. Success continued throughout 2016 with the book staying 29 weeks in the Children’s Top Ten and exceeding sales of over 500,000 in the UK alone.
David Walliams says, “I wrote the first collection of short stories with the reluctant reader in mind. I wanted to create a book that would be very friendly for children whatever their reading ability, full of surreal humour and colourful illustrations from the great Tony Ross. This new book has all new characters and stories and I am thrilled to be unleashing these horrible children on the world.”
