Publisher's Summary

Millions of young listeners have loved the World's Worst Children tales. Now they will revel in this delightfully dreadful collection of the most gruesome grown-ups ever: The World's Worst Teachers

Think your teachers are bad? Wait till you meet this lot. These 10 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 Pent, he's a teacher with a real difference. He is bone-shakingly terrified of children!

Critic Reviews

"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 youre mad to suggest reading for pleasure." (The Independent)

Amazing

This book is one of the best books I have ever heard. I have listened to it 40 times. The way David Walliams reads it and how he manages to get you hooked from the first story. He makes you want to see how bad the next teacher is compared to the first. I highly recommend this audio book for the young age.

A-ma-zing!

I think this was one of the best books I have ever read. I think anybody who doesn't like it clearly just doesn't have the same perspective of everyone else in the world. There's is a laugh on every page in this book. All in all amazing book!
