The Wonderful World of Walliams

It’s with great excitement that we announce international bestselling children’s author, David Walliams, is coming to Sydney this December with his dazzling new novel, Bad Dad.

It’s ten years since rock star author David Walliams’ debut book The Boy in the Dress took the children’s book world by storm. Since then, the bestselling author, comedian and actor – dubbed the ‘Roald Dahl of the 21st Century’– has won legions of adoring young fans around the world, sold over 20 million books and had his stories translated into 53 languages. Walliams has truly become a global phenomenon.

His next classic-in-the-making, Bad Dad, is a fast and furious, heart-warming story that will have readers on the edge of their seats, roaring with laughter and holding back the tears.

Join us as we welcome David Walliams LIVE and in conversation with a very special host at Riverside. You can expect lots of laugher and fun, as well as a reading of Bad Dad by the wonderful Walliams himself!

Bad Dad is released on 6 November.
