8th – 17th April 2017 – Create and Draw a Brand New David Walliams Character!
For our first ever kid’s sketch off we asked our young sketchers to draw a new character they’d like to see in a David Walliams’ book. They had ten days over the Easter holidays to get stuck in and come up with their new character to be in with the chance of winning a copy of David Walliams’ The World’s Worst Children signed by David Walliams himself plus a bundle of art goodies from our Let’s Create range!
A gangsta granny, a demon dentist, an awful auntie, a slightly annoying elephant and many more, David Walliams’ books feature some fantastically funny creations which capture the imaginations of children. So it’s no surprise that the entries we received were equally as inventive! From the Smelly Pop Lady to Ninja Nan and Grumpy Grandad, our young sketchers made us smile with their original and comical characters. Browse the gallery below to see the entries and find out who we chose as our winner and two runners-up.
