David Walliams will publish a sequel to The World’s Worst Children next month.
The sequel follows another line-up of “disgraceful children even more deliciously wicked than before”.
Walliams said: “I wrote the first collection of short stories with the reluctant reader in mind. I wanted to create a book that would be very friendly for children whatever their reading ability, full of surreal humour and colourful illustrations from the great Tony Ross. This new book has all new characters and stories and I am thrilled to be unleashing these horrible children on the world.”
The first Worst Children was published in May 2016 and topped the children’s book chart for 10 weeks.
The new book will be published on May 25.
