He’s been called the next Roald Dahl with many comparing his quirky writing style to that of one of the best children’s authors of all time. With nine novels under his belt as well as five picture books and two short story collections, Walliams has announced that in November this year, he will release his tenth novel titled BAD DAD.

“Bad Dad is about a boy named Frank whose dad is thrown into prison for driving the getaway car in a bank robbery. Frank hatches a daring plan to break his father out of prison for the night so they can put the stolen money back. But will the evil crime boss Mr Big stop them?” says Walliams.

Harper Collins Publishers confirm Bad Dad is a fast and furious, heart-warming story of a father and son on an adventure – and a thrilling mission to break an innocent man into prison!

Bad Dad is Walliams tenth novel and is illustrated by Tony Ross who is a regular illustrator for Walliams.

Dads come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

There are fat ones and thin ones, tall ones and short ones.
There are young ones and old ones, clever ones and stupid ones.
There are silly ones and serious ones, loud ones and quiet ones.
Of course, there are good dads, and bad dads . . .

Bad Dad will will be available on 2 November 2017 in hardback and eBook, plus an audiobook narrated by David Walliams himself!
