About the Author

David Walliams continues to take the literary world by storm. His tenth novel, BAD DAD, was an immediate number one, following the triumph of THE MIDNIGHT GANG, the biggest-selling children’s book of 2016. THE WORLD’S WORST CHILDREN 2, spent four weeks at industry number one.

David’s books have now exceeded 100 non-consecutive weeks at children’s number one, and have been translated into 53 languages, selling more than 35 million copies worldwide.



Tony Ross was born in London in 1938. He went to art school in Liverpool and has since worked as a typographer for design and advertising agencies. His cartoons have appeared in Punch, Town, Time and Tide and the News of the World. His first book Hugo and the Wicked Winter was published in 1972. Tony has since written over 100 books and illustrated over 2000! Two of his creations, Towser and The Little Princess have been turned into TV series.
Tony lives in Wales.

1.0 out of 5 stars Probably an amazing book in appalling condition
By Jaana on 2 July 2020
I don't know about the contents of a book but received it damaged as shown on the photos. Very disappointed. Especially, as I PRE-ORDERED it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honoured to be in the book, but the author has not cross-referenced his sources
By Djilly L. on 11 August 2020
Yes I prominently feature in this book.
I’m now officially one of the worst parents ever.

My children frequently told me so already.
The youngest, six years old, when in anger never wastes a chance to shout that I’ve totally ruined his life.
I won’t be specific but now the author of this impressive work of reference, Mr Walliams, has used my unique parental profile under an alias.

He based this on interviews with my children and their friends. I will not deny this. And given that I have very little other qualities, there is even a little bit of pride to have made it to the top ranks.

The only thing is that, while it is all true, many details have been omitted. For example the author, forgets to mention that my children are equally horrible and both make an appearance in Volume One of his work on The Worst Children Ever.
Also as a proper journalist Mr Walliams has not cross-referenced his sources. Personally I would have had a slightly different take on things and could have provided more background or justification for my behaviour. Personally I think this is a case of cause and effect and my notorious behaviour as a parent is only a natural reaction to my little angels' unforgivable exploits and to how they manage to get under my skin all-the-time.
