The new heart-warming and hilariously brilliant story from number one bestselling author David Walliams. Beautifully illustrated by artistic genius, Tony Ross.

Dads come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

There are fat ones and thin ones, tall ones and short ones.
There are young ones and old ones, clever ones and stupid ones.
There are silly ones and serious ones, loud ones and quiet ones.
Of course, there are good dads, and bad dads...

A high-speed cops and robbers adventure with heart and soul about a father and son taking on the villainous Mr Big – and winning!

This riches-to-rags story will have you on the edge of your seat and howling with laughter!

Bad Dad is a fast and furious, heart-warming story of a father and son on an adventure – and a thrilling mission to break an innocent man into prison!

David Walliams is a global phenomenon in the world of publishing and his books have revolutionised reading for children. His ability to wow fans is unprecedented, with global sales exceeding 20 million copies and his books translated into 53 languages. In 2017 he had the top five biggest selling children’s books of the year and he also became the first children’s writer ever to celebrate 100 weeks at the number-one position in the children’s book charts.

 


AUTHOR: David Walliams - comedian, actor and author - continues to take the children's literary world by storm. His tenth novel, BAD DAD, was an immediate number one, following the triumph of THE MIDNIGHT GANG, the biggest-selling children's book of 2016. WORLD'S WORST CHILDREN 2, which published in early 2017, spent four weeks at industry number one and eight weeks at the top of the children's chart. They have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim - and RATBURGER, DEMON DENTIST and AWFUL AUNTIE have all won the National Book Awards Children's Book of the Year. David's books have now exceeded 100 non-consecutive weeks in the children's number-one spot, and have been translated into 50 languages, selling more than 22 million copies worldwide. Born in London, Tony Ross went to art school in Liverpool. His cartoons have appeared in famous publications the world over. His first book, HUGO AND THE WICKED WINTER, was published in 1972. Tony has since written over 100 books and illustrated over 2000! His creations Towser and The Little Princess have been turned into TV series. David and Tony have worked on six bestselling picture books together, as well as eight of David's phenomenally successful children's novels - BILLIONAIRE BOY, GANGSTA GRANNY, RATBURGER, DEMON DENTIST, AWFUL AUNTIE, GRANDPA'S GREAT ESCAPE, THE MIDNIGHT GANG and BAD DAD. David and Tony also collaborated on the 2017 World Book Day title, BLOB, and the two blockbuster short story collections, THE WORLD'S WORST CHILDREN and THE WORLD'S WORST CHILDREN 2.
