Are you ready to listen to the World’s Worst Children?

Five beastly boys and five gruesome girls!

  • 'Or Dribbling Drew' - a boy whose drool gets him into trouble on a school trip!
  • And not forgetting 'Blubbering Bertha' - a girl who bawls and tells terrible tales!

From number one best-selling author David Walliams comes this collection of wickedly funny, deliciously mischievous tales, read by the author himself and Nitin Ganatra as Raj.

wackiest worst children stories are wonderful !

Raj and his introduction makes the best start to the book! I was smiling from the very beginning and the laughter continued throughout till the very end of the book. The narration and sound effects were brilliant as ever. Highly recommend this audio book. I love the way the author always has a moral to the story even if it is tongue in cheek.

Kids laughing out loud!

Bought this as something for my son (just 7) and daughter (just 5) to listen to on the plane/by the beach. Although I haven't listened to it personally, the children LOVED it. My son was asking to listen to this rather than go in the pool or on the beach! They both laughed out loud. If they're happy, I'm happy.

Great for first year

My pupils loved these stories and there was lots of scope to explore language and form. Walliam’s is a terrific narrator. Magic!

The less liked of David Walliams books, so far.

It's nicely narrated as the other stories that we have listened to from the same author. Nevertheless we didn't finish listening to it because we didn't find the short stories interesting. They didn't capture our imagination (mine and my 11 year old boy). We didn't find it funny either (and we had laughed or giggled with some other of his books).
