David Walliams is a comedian, author and actor. He was born on the 20th August 1971 in Wimbledon, London, UK. David proposed to his ex wife with a £100,000 engagement ring he had hidden in her burger!
On Monday 20th of September we had a zoom call interview with him. He told us about his life in school and what his teachers were like and where he gets his ideas for his great books. He said he didn’t like school because his teacher wasn’t very nice. He was scared of his dinner lady because she had a stick and said “I’ll hit you with it if you don’t behave!” This is where he got the idea for his book ‘World’s Worst Teachers’.
David even read some of his books to us. He showed us his dogs Ernie and Bert. David has made 26 books for children. For my age children, I recommend Gangsta Granny, Bad Dad and Granpa’s Great Escape.
We really enjoyed it and we’re looking forward to when he makes more great and funny books.
