The World's Worst Teachers by David WalliamsYour children have had their school reports but how did their teachers fare? What better way to end the school year than with the latest David Walliams book – The World's Worst Teachers.

David Walliams certainly has the gift of being able to tickle the funny bones of young readers. When The World's Worst Teachers arrived, nine year-old Harriet couldn't wait to read it. Her opinion? "It was amazing! The worst teacher in the book is Miss Splatts – the dinner lady – because she puts things like boogies, flip flops, men's underwear and other unnecessary things in the lunches." She wasn't too impressed with Mr and Mrs Lovey Dovey either.

Here are ten tales of the world’s most splendidly sinister teachers –the most gruesome grown-ups ever, illustrated in glorious colour by artistic genius, Tony Ross. 

Short stories are great for encouraging less enthusiastic readers who may be put off by longer novels. The typography and layout of the pages is particularly child-friendly and leads the reader through the story.
