Children’s Literature Written By David Walliams

The author David Walliams has written a wide variety of different children’s stories. Indeed, one of his books, Grandpa’s Great Escape was recently adapted to a television movie that was directed by Elliot Hegarty.

The story Grandpa’s Great Escape is a fantastic children’s story and is a great example of how reading literature can be both a great learning experience and an enjoyable hobby. The story follows a young boy named Jack who is trying to rescue his Grandpa from a care home called Twilight Towers. Not only is this a fantastic story about a boy and his grandfather, but it is also a wonderful opportunity for children to learn about the importance of the sacrifices made by those during the second world war.

David Walliams has written lots of other fantastic works of fiction for children to enjoy. For example, the book The Boy in the Dress, which is about a boy called Dennis who one day goes out in public wearing a dress under the alter ego of “Denise”. This book is a fantastic work of literature aimed at children aged between eight and twelve. Indeed, not only is this book an enjoyable read, but it is also a great book to educate children about cross-dressing and that it is something to be accepted, not something to be ashamed of.

Also, similar to Grandpa’s Great Escape, the David Walliams story The Boy in the Dress was adapted to a TV movie. This was released in 2014 and was directed by Matt Lipsey.
