David Baddiel

In the 1990’s David Baddiel was a rock star comedian and archetypal ‘new lad,’ but now he has reinvented himself as a highly skilled – and highly successful – novelist. As part of sketch troupe The Mary Whitehouse Experience and then as comedic partner to Frank Skinner, Baddiel was one of the most prominent funny-men in the country. In 1996 he wrote his first novel, Time for Bed, a comedy that was infused with the Jewish culture that he grew up with. His subsequent adult novels grew progressively more serious, taking in subjects such as the death of Princess Diana and the internment of German Jews by the British during World War II. Baddiel unveiled The Parent Agency, his first book for children, in 2015 and has gone on to write four more hilarious bestsellers for the pre-teen age group.

From the pen of the outrageous David Baddiel comes a cracking body-swap comedy. The super strict new headmaster of Bracket Wood School suddenly finds himself in the body of the naughtiest boy in class – which means that the school is now being run by Ryan Ward, relentless practical joker and mischief maker. Oh, and the school inspectors just happen to be on their way. A laugh-out-loud story of escalating chaos and cringe-worthy comedy, Head Kid might just be David Baddiel’s funniest book yet.
