December 'extravaganza' for David Walliams

December 'extravaganza' for David Walliams

Children's author David Walliams will appear at the Palace Theatre in London on 7th December in what publisher HarperCollins is billing a "World of Walliams Mega Event".

Walliams will read from his new book, Demon Dentist, and his first picture book, The Slightly Annoying Elephant, during an evening hosted by "Britain's Got More Talent" presenter Stephen Mulhern.

Following the readings, Walliams will take part in a signing session with illustrator Tony Ross. A boutique bookshop will also be set up at the venue on Shaftesbury Avenue, selling a range of Walliams books and merchandise.

Walliams has sold over 2.4m books in the UK through Nielsen BookScan, with HarperCollins putting sales of Demon Dentist, his sixth title, at 100,000 copies in the UK across print and digital editions since its release in September.

Tickets for the event are being sold at £10 apiece through www.worldofwalliams.com.
