Written exclusively for Comic Relief 2015 by David Walliams. From Number One bestselling picture book duo, David Walliams and Tony Ross, comes this spectacularly funny story for children of 3 and up. A bored queen. A birthday wish. An outrageous orang-utan. Everything's about to go bananas! Written by David Walliams as an exclusive children's picture book especially for Comic Relief - David will be giving all of his proceeds from the book to the charity. The illustrator, Tony Ross, will waive his royalties and HarperCollins UK will also donate all profits from the publishing of the book - at least GBP3 from each copy sold will go to Comic Relief.
