Product Description

The fifth mad rib-tickler from the new king of funny, hot on the heels of the riotous Gangsta Granny. From an author we’re tipping as a new Roald Dahl, Ratburger is a delicacy that mustn’t be missed. Things are not looking good for Zoe, the young heroine of this story. Her revolting stepmother, Sheila, is so lazy she makes Zoe pick her nose for her. The school bully, Tina Trotts, makes her life a misery by flobbing on her head. And now the evil Burt from Burt’s Burgers is after her pet rat! Can you guess why? The clue is in the title…

“I absolutely love David Walliams’s books… they will become classics.” Sue Townsend, creator of Adrian Mole

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 took up swimming in his youth because he was overweight, and has subsequently completed long distance swims of the English Channel, the Strait of Gibraltar and the River Thames, raising millions of pounds for charity!

In 2008 David’s first children’s book The Boy in the Dress was published, illustrated by Quentin Blake. 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.
