Summary

Be warned! Awful animals lurk inside....

Millions of people have loved The World’s Worst Children, The World’s Worst Teachers and The World’s Worst Parents—now they will delight in this ludicrously laugh-out-loud collection of pets, brought to you by the phenomenal number one best-selling author David Walliams.

These 10 tales of the world’s craziest creatures will have you shaking with laughter. You’ll never look at pets in the same way again!

Marvel at Houdini, the magician’s rabbit. Take a trip around the world with Zoom, the supersonic tortoise. Gasp at the chaos created by Griselda, a grizzly bear with a big secret. And run for your lives! It’s Furp, the monstrous goldfish!

Good pets, bad pets, supervillain pets, pets as big as a house and pets that could eat you in one gulp—these are the most hilarious and horrendous animals around.

David Walliams was most recently Children’s #1 bestseller for six weeks with Gangsta Granny Strikes Again! (TCM chart: from 20 Nov 2021)

Critic reviews

“This really is Walliams at his most indulgently gross and silly—the perfect combination for thousands of his loyal fans.” (Daily Mail)

“Laugh-out-loud funny and…downright disgusting.” (Daily Express)

“Often described as the modern-day Roald Dahl, Walliams is a big author with big ideas and plenty of illustrations, all combining to make for real page-turners, even for kids who would normally look at you as if you’re mad to suggest reading for pleasure.” (The Independent)

Awesome! We need another one!

This book is really funny! Love all the pets! I was waiting days for this book to come out and it was really worth it! We need a number 2! I really like the book! Amazing? You ask. Yes. Very Amazing. Too amazing. So amazing that it could blow someone’s head off. Though I wouldn’t recommend doing that. Anyway, BUY THE BOOK! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? HURRY UP AND BUY IT! I KNOW YOU WANT IT! RIGHT?

The World's Greatest Book!!

It's a funny and laugh out loud book. It's a good book because when you want a pet these are the things you need to avoid. My favourite pet from the book is probably the gerbil. They look adorable but they are really terrible! I'm glad I used my Audible credit on this book. Hope you enjoy it too. ('M' aged 8)
