Author, actor, comedian, charity fundraiser, TV talent show judge - David Walliams ticks all the boxes! Having shot to fame in TV comedy Little Britain, David has since won legions of fans, both for his appearances as a judge on Britain's Got Talent, and for his children's books, from Mr Stink to Demon Dentist and Gangsta Granny. Real-life Stories: David Walliams gives you the story behind this incredible man - from the schooldays that gave rise to his love of acting and writing, through his time at the National Youth Theatre, to the TV star he is today. It also looks at David's commitment to charity work - he has swum the English Channel and the full length of the River Thames, and cycled from John O'Groats to Lands End, all to raise money for Sport Relief. Biographical information, and David Walliams quotes, support the narrative. Punchy, fact-filled text make this a fantastic resource for biography based project work for children aged seven and above; a full glossary and index are included. Each title in the Real-life Stories series looks at a celebrity who is at the top of their game and the height of their career. We take a look at how they got to where they are today, what their daily life is like and where they are going next. If you've enjoyed reading about David Walliams, why not try finding out about Adele, Banksy, the Duchess of Cambridge, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, Brian Cox, Gary Barlow, Will.i.am, Steve Backshall, Stella McCartney, Alex Ferguson, Malorie Blackman or Kylie Minogue, in other titles in the series?
