Description


Hailed as “the heir to Roald Dahl” by The Spectator, the UK’s #1 bestselling children’s author, David Walliams, will have fans of Jeff Kinney and Rachel Renee Russell in stitches!

David Walliams burst on to the American scene with his New York Times bestseller Demon Dentist, and now he’s bringing his signature humor to the sick ward in The Midnight Gang.

Tom lands in the hospital with a nasty bump on the head after a gym class accident. And things only get worse when he meets the hospital staff, including the wicked matron of the children’s ward.. But luckily, Tom’s time in the hospital will be anything but boring when he discovers that his fellow patients turn the awful ward into the most wondrous world after lights out

 Join the Midnight Gang as they make their wildest dreams come true!

Praise For…


PRAISE IN THE USA FOR GRANDPA’S GREAT ESCAPE: “A realistic and touching relationship. Ample illustrations from the always splendid Ross will keep the pages in this plump volume turning. A Dahl-esque tale.”

“While the irreverent wit will keep readers engaged, the surprising tenderness in the relationship between Jack and his ailing grandfather is what makes this book truly shine. A darkly humorous tale with a surprising amount of heart.”

“Walliams gives Grandpa-and [his] Spitfire-a grand send-off. A pleaser for fans of similar escapades engineered by the likes of Roald Dahl or Frank Cotrell-Boyce.”

“Ross’s energetic drawings and some playful use of typography bring additional drama and humor to the story. The story’s comedy is nicely counterbalanced by the poignant bond between Jack and Grandpa.”

PRAISE IN THE USA FOR DEMON DENTIST: “A Brit-flavored romp that combines moments of intense terror and bracing courage with biting satire.”

“A Dahl-esque mix of humor and horror that will appeal to fans of both.”

“A goofy, gory, outlandish tale of deep evil and terrible tooth-rot-and sweetness of heart. Kids who enjoy humorous gross-out horror will definitely want to book an appointment of their own with the Demon Dentist.”

“Dahl-esque in the extreme…Frenetic humor for middle grade fans of the funny and fearsome.”

UK PRAISE FOR DAVID WALLIAMS: “No one has any business being as talented as David Walliams. He is the heir to Roald Dahl-and that’s saying a lot.”

“Walliams’s books will become classics.”

“Unlike other celebrity authors, Walliams can write; his energetic fairytale will be relished.”

“The joy of David’s books are that he completely understands how children think and feel and is never ever patronising.”

“Further proof that Walliams has become a master storyteller. Walliams manages to infuse his novels with genuine wit and sly commentary.”

“Comedian David Walliams has taken the publishing world by storm.”

“A triumphant mix of wit and warmth.”
