David Walliams is a comedian, writer and actor and is best known for his partnership with Matt Lucas on the hugely popular sketch show Little Britain, and as a star judge on Britain’s Got Talent.

David is also well known for his charitable work for Sports Relief, part of Comic Relief.

He has gone on to take the children’s literary world by storm, dominating sales charts and twice winning the National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year. His books have now been translated into 40+ languages, and also include picture books illustrated by Tony Ross.
