David Walliams’ inventive take on the cautionary tale began in 2016 with the publication of The World’s Worst Children. Two further volumes followed in 2017 and 2018 with total sales of the trilogy now exceeding 1.7 million copies in the UK alone.
Walliams now turns his attention to teachers in these ten tales of the most gruesome grown-ups ever. Think your teachers are bad? Wait till you
meet this lot. These tales of the world’s most splendidly sinister teachers will have you running for the school gates. Dr Dread teaches Science and is half man, half monster. Mrs Splatt, the dinner lady, serves the most revolting food you could possibly imagine. Miss Seethe is ALWAYS furious – and she’s on a detention rampage…
Every story will be illustrated in glorious colour by artistic genius Tony Ross.
David Walliams said, “There have been three volumes of The World’s Worst Children. Now it is time for the kids to get their revenge, with The World’s Worst Teachers. I think this is my funniest book yet, and I hope will be enjoyed by even the most reluctant reader.”
