Such a weird but awesome combination of groseness and hilariousness. I love David Walliams' books because they are so entertaining and fast pace, this one was also entertaining and very fast pace (I've finished it in one sittung)but it wasn't as entartaining as the ones by David Walliams I've read before. Still, it was great and very enjoyable, and I am sure that younger readers will enjoy it.
I don't know if I'd go as far as saying that David Walliams is Roald Dahl's successor, I don't even think by a long shot but I see why people may link the styles together, what with illustrations being somewhat similar. This is the first Walliams book I've read and although I didn't enjoy it - and thought it was utterly disgusting at some points - I can understand why the age group, especially boys, would enjoy it. This particular book is filled ...more
If you don't like stuff that will make you hurl than don't read this
Raj says this on the back: please, please, please, a thousand times pleases and yet one more please DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!
I didn't listen
I'm happy I read it
We get to meet a boy who dribbles and sleeps the day away, another who cultivates his own nits to become a super-villain, one girl who can't stop moving, another who never throws anything away or cleans her room. And of course, a boy who collects his bogeys.
It has a feel at times o ...more

This was a collection of 10 stories about some very naughty children. Like most short story compilations some stories are better than others. I personally prefer his full length stories such a The Midnight Gang.
My favourite stories were the cautionary tales such as Ernest Earnest and Brian Wong was never wrong.
I think these stories are perfect for younger children to listen to before bed.
This book was released in 2016, when my son was 8 and we would read this together a lot He's 11 now, tells me he too big to be reading with me now :( So I have to relive the giggles we shared by reading them every so often. Enough about me. Lets talk about the book.
The worlds worst Children contains ten stories about the most frightfully children. with hilarious out comes. this book includes:

The World’s Worst Children is a fabulously funny collection of short stories. The ten stories about five naughty boys and five equally awful girls creates a very addictive book. A wonderful read for children and adults alike.
David Walliams is a wonderful author. The World’s Worst Chilfren is proof of that. This book is filled with genuine laugh out loud moments. And quite a few eww gross moments. The stories are so captivating, you won’t want the b ...more
I chose this rating because I found this book hilariously funny and cool!!! I would recommend this children, but also to adults, to remind them that their children are not as bad as all of these!!!
I think David Walliams comes a close 2nd to Roald Dahl and his books will just get better and better!!! I think this is a severe reminder to children; to obey their parents otherwise they could end up being eaten by the dirty clothes monster, or, even worse, being rolled in a ...more
Whether it’s dribbling Drew, a nose-picker, a liar, or a girl who never washed anything, a know-it-all, a girl who likes to blow off, or a boy who only smiles at other people’s misfortune, these are funny tales about these terrible children’s reign of terror.
Great read-a-loud for Year 2-3’s (6-7 yr olds)
Overall still would recommend to kids and younger teens I know. Grubby Gertrude has to be my favourite story in there.
