David Walliams Shortlisted for Prestigious Writing Award

David Walliams, best known for his laugh out loud comedy writing and performances in hit TV show little Britain is enjoying fame elsewhere, as a children’s writer. Releasing his first novel in 2008 titled ‘The Boy In The Dress’, David has become a much loved and appreciated writer, with his comic experiences transferring perfectly into the children’s genre. 2013 will see David Walliams battle it out for a Red House Children’s Book Award – ‘Books For Younger Readers’ against the equally impressive talents of Elen Caldecott (Operation Eiffel Tower), and Jonathan Meres (The World of Norm: May Contain Nuts). Gangsta Granny, which was also shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize this year, provides children with excellently hysterical comedy reading published by HarperCollins Children’s Books. The award chosen entirely by children is due to be completed by the 27th January 2013. To vote for David's book to win visit Red House Children’s Book Award website.
