Publisher's Summary

From the world's favourite author, David Walliams, 10 cautionary tales and a delightfully dreadful cast of characters, all hilariously read aloud by the author himself!

Are you ready to meet the world's worst children? Five beastly boys and five gruesome girls!

Like Sofia Sofa - a TV superfan so stuck to the sofa that she's turning into one! Or Dribbling Drew - a boy whose drool gets him into trouble on a school trip! And don't forget Blubbering Bertha - a girl who bawls and tells terrible tales!

Also featuring a special appearance from fan favourite Raj!

From number-one best-selling author David Walliams comes this collection of wickedly funny, deliciously mischievous tales.

The less liked of David Walliams books, so far.

It's nicely narrated as the other stories that we have listened to from the same author. Nevertheless we didn't finish listening to it because we didn't find the short stories interesting. They didn't capture our imagination (mine and my 11 year old boy). We didn't find it funny either (and we had laughed or giggled with some other of his books).

wackiest worst children stories are wonderful !

Raj and his introduction makes the best start to the book! I was smiling from the very beginning and the laughter continued throughout till the very end of the book. The narration and sound effects were brilliant as ever. Highly recommend this audio book. I love the way the author always has a moral to the story even if it is tongue in cheek.

Kids laughing out loud!

Bought this as something for my son (just 7) and daughter (just 5) to listen to on the plane/by the beach. Although I haven't listened to it personally, the children LOVED it. My son was asking to listen to this rather than go in the pool or on the beach! They both laughed out loud. If they're happy, I'm happy.

Disgustingly Funny

Your little monsters will be riveting by this hilarious tale of the most disgusting and obnoxious children in the world. Written and narrated by the very talented David Walliams - this is the audio book that puts an end to the bickering on those long car journeys!
