Think your teachers are bad? Wait till you meet this lot. These ten tales of the world’s most splendidly sinister teachers will have you running for the school gates. Dr Dread teaches science and is half man, half monster… Watch out for the ghastly Miss Seethe. She is ALWAYS furious – and she’s on a detention rampage. And as for Phobe, he’s a teacher with a real difference. He is bone-shakingly terrified of… children!
Millions of children have loved the World’s Worst Children – now they will revel in this delightfully dreadful collection of the most gruesome grown-ups ever, The World’s Worst Teachers. Brought to you by number one bestselling author, David Walliams, with every story illustrated in glorious colour by artistic genius, Tony Ross.
PRAISE FOR THE WORLD’S WORST CHILDREN:
“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

One thing worth mentioning is the hardback. Again, beautiful and generous illustrations on almost every page, all worked into the story in sometimes a comic book feel that brings the story telling vividly to life without taking over from the actual reading.
The dust jackets on our books always get lost, but the hardback without dust jacket is equally attractive on David Walliams books. I always take it off to look at the pictures.
Setting a hugely high bar for creativity, tapping into what kids love, and longevity. David Walliams might not be the "Best" kids author ever, but pretty much everything he writes is SO accessible to girls and boys of a wide range of ages. Who else is guaranteed an annual Xmas dramatisation each year.
Let's face it, Walliams' books are never going to be examples of well-written children's literature but children, especially those in the 8-14 age bracket, absolutely love them so he's obviously doing something right.
