Win with Walliams

Liz Nicholls


Considered by many as the natural heir to Roald Dahl, David Walliams is the UK’s best-selling children’s author, and you could win his latest book.

“I think books are so immersive that children like being alone with them,” says David. “We have JK Rowling to thank for turning children on to books in their millions. A good children’s book should be funny and exciting, with a message that makes you think long after you’ve finished it. Dame Jacqueline Wilson is a genius. I read Tracy Beaker and thought I should give up, it’s so brilliant. Michael Morpurgo is an astonishingly good writer to teach children about history. Andy Stanton’s books are very funny, as are Jeff Kinney’s. I love to read Julia Donaldson with my son. Judith Kerr is a brilliant author and illustrator, and let’s not forget Michael Bond, creator of Paddington!”

WIN! To celebrate ten wonderful Walliams years, we’ve teamed up with HarperCollins Children’s to offer three signed copies of World’s Worst Children 3.

HOW TO ENTER: Use the hashtag #Walliams10 and add @randamag and @HarperCollinsCh @harpercollinsch before 28th September for your chance to be picked to win.
