    Know a little one who would love this hilarious book by David Walliams? How about a paperback book and audio CD of the story read by the children's author and funnyman himself? This is the title for them!

    Ratburger is another fantastically funny book from David Walliams, the top selling children's author of today and one hailed by many as 'the new Roald Dahl'. A touching read full of zany humour, raw emotion and wonderful observations, Ratburger is sure to appeal to Walliams' ever-growing legion of fans and draws from the gruesome, anarchic and hilarious humour of The Twits and Mr Gum.

    Things are not looking good for poor Zoe, her stepmother Sheila is so lazy that Zoe has to pick her nose for her, the school bully Tina Trotts is making her life a misery and now the evil Burt from Burt's Burgers wants to steal her pet rat... Can you guess what he wants to do with it? The clue might just be in the title of the book.

    Following the success of The Boy in the Dress, Mr Stink, Billionaire Boy and Gangsta Granny, Walliams' fifth children's novel, Ratburger, will make a fine addition to your young reader's bookshelf. And, with the included audio CD of the story, Ratburger can be taken anywhere!
