David Walliams said, "Bad Dad is about a boy named Frank whose dad is thrown into prison for driving the getaway car in a bank robbery. Frank hatches a daring plan to break his father out of prison for the night so they can put the stolen money back. But will the evil crime boss Mr Big stop them?

"I cannot believe 10 years has passed since the publication of my first children's book, The Boy in the Dress. The success of the books over the last decade has been beyond my wildest dreams."

HarperCollins Children's Books Executive Publisher Ann-Janine Murtagh said, "David Walliams' 10th novel is as fresh, funny and distinctively original as his first. It's a rollicking road movie in a book, but it's also a story with a truly touching depiction of a father and son relationship, which demonstrates what a uniquely talented writer David is and defines this book as a future classic. We are incredibly proud to be publishing Bad Dad on the HarperCollins list - it's a bold, beautiful and brilliant book and is sure to stay in the hearts of Walliams' readers forever."
