David Walliams has announced details of his next book, titled Fing.
The book is aimed at children aged seven or over.
Fing will be released on 21st February, and is about the Meek family. Librarians Mr and Mrs Meek will do anything to keep their daughter, Myrtle, happy.
Myrtle always wants more, more, more and when she decides that she wants a ‘Fing’, her parents go on a quest through forbidden vaults of the library, through the pages of a mysterious book called The Monsterpaedia and to the farthest corners of the jungle to see if they can find one.
The book will be illustrated by Walliams’ long-time collaborator Tony Ross.
Walliams said: “I wanted to write a story just to make children laugh, and nothing else. I think this is my funniest book, and I hope it will appeal to young readers and reluctant readers everywhere.”
