Don't miss the book that all little bookworms are eager to get their hands on; a brand new venture into epic fantasy adventure by 2018's biggest-selling author, David Walliams.
Set one hundred years in the future in the year 2120, London has fallen into ruins, and a griffin - the King of Beasts - threatens the safety of Buckingham Palace. Twelve year old Prince Alfred is sickly and has never even left the palace. But when his mother is dragged away to the Tower of London, Alfred may have no choice but to head out on a quest to save her, and face the King of Beasts in battle...
Filled with gorgeous illustrations by Tony Ross, this best-loved children's writer and illustrator take us on a magical journey into a fantastical future realm that both children and parents will adore. Promising a tale of myths, magic and beasts along with Walliams' brilliant trademark heroes and villains, this richly imaginative story is sure to captivate readers.
"This book is a real departure for me. It is a science-fiction fantasy adventure set in London one hundred years in the future. I hope my readers will love coming on this magical journey with me." - David Walliams
"The Beast of Buckingham Palace is a glorious departure into a fantastical future realm. It has all the classic Walliams hallmarks but with a ferocious command of a fantasy world that is a testament to David's extraordinary talent as a writer. It is set to fire the imaginations of children the world over and will mesmerise readers from beginning to end." - HarperCollins Children's Books Executive Publisher
Finding a child who isn't completely obsessed with David Walliams' books is like trying to find a bargain in Raj's sweet shop (assuming you're not a fan of half-eaten sweets). His stories connect with kids in a way that so many of us boring adults struggle with, and his larger-than-life, unforgettable characters are second to none.
