The World's Worst Children
From Dribbling Drew – a boy whose drool gets him into terrible trouble – to Sofia Sofa – a TV super-fan so stuck to the sofa that she’s turning into one! – the uproariously funny cast of characters will delight David Walliams’ readers.
A wickedly funny and wonderfully surreal collection of ten stories about ten delightfully dreadful children, The World’s Worst Children is David Walliams’ unique take on the classic cautionary tale.

Added bonus message: scientists are boring.
And, at the end of the book is a “hilarious” message that the book omitted the absolute worst kid in the world - your child! ha. heh heh. ha. No danger any child will take that to heart! Right?
I guess what I am saying is this humor is too sophisticated for kids. Strange thing to say about a book with lots of flatulence jokes. But for a kid to “get” that we are all “the worst” at times and not to develop a lot of complexes about their flaws and bodies, they have to be older. Or maybe they have to be boys. I don’t know, I don’t have a boy. Perhaps they are completely different creatures.
Each chapter is a separate story about a humourusly awful child. Colorful pictures, well written. I am certainly purchasing other books from this author.
I urge your children to read this or you read it to your children for fun at bedtime or any time for that matter

So the book is incomplete at a minimum.
Take for example Juliet-the-Sloth; she leaves her rubbish everywhere throughout the house. Her clothes lie scattered on the floor and hallway for days. She bites nails, only brushes her teeth under immense pressure or in exceptional circumstances. And is happy to go without a shower for days in a row.
And why didn’t the book dedicate a chapter to Jonathan-the-wisecrack? – an annoying little chap that claims to know more about his favourite subjects (dinosaurs and Star Wars) than anyone else, he endlessly chats about these topics until your ears drop off. Worse, he is full of awful jokes; tends to run up to adults, grab them tightly only to .. start farting loudly.
So I got some first-hand experience with terrible cases myself. And I can tell you it’s not easy and very demanding. I'll be open to an interview with Mr Walliams when he is conducting research for his next book on this topic.
Very highly recommended.
