David Walliams was the number one bestselling children’s author in Britain last year.
He has published seven books, including The Boy in the Dress, Mr Stink, Gangsta Granny and Awful Auntie.
His stories often feature mean, stupid – and sometimes homicidal – adults and kids who find it hard to fit in.
He is also about busting stereotypes and exploring themes of acceptance and redemption.
