From the Publisher

Product description



“This really is Walliams at his most indulgently gross and silly – the perfect combination for thousands of his loyal fans… stunningly illustrated by Ross who captures the energy and chaos of the stories.” – Daily Mail

“Laugh-out-loud funny and…downright disgusting” – Daily Express

“Often described as the modern-day Roald Dahl, Walliams is a big author with big ideas and plenty of illustrations, all combining to make for real page-turners, even for kids who would normally look at you as if you’re mad to suggest reading for pleasure.” – The Independent

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood trauma relived
By Djilly L. on 28 November 2019
Great book to inform young readers about the potential horrors at school. I bought it for my children but browsing through it made me relive the countless punishments, sanctions and extra homework piled upon me during my school years back in the 1970’s/1980’s. It was a different age and I was no angel but some of these tutors might have had personal issues. Take Miss Cotton, our needlework teacher that forced her unruly pupils to design and create their own straitjackets. Herr Schweinhart, the German language teacher that was so keen on “zucht und ordnung” that he didn’t shy away from enforcing that principle by hitting the pupils on the head with his voluminous Goethe works. And my PE teacher that not only punished my disobedience with countless of push ups but also visibly enjoyed me not being left out and not chosen by any team in case of uneven class numbers… It’s all too painful really.
So it’s good that finally some research has been done on the subject. And that some of the worst cases are exposed in this excellent hard cover book that is presented very well and illustrated by appropriate art. Thank you Mr. Walliams.
