Which is why there's always extra excitement to learn that one of the hit adaptations of his stories is coming to a stage near you.
We've already booked in for The Boy in the Dress at the Royal Shakespeare Company (Robbie Williams is doing the music!) and now Birmingham Stage Company is doing a brand new production of Billionaire Boy, adapted and directed by Neal Foster, which lands in London for the tail end of its UK tour, which starts in September.
Billionaire Boy tells the story of 12-year-old Joe Spud, who happens to be the richest boy in the country, with a lavish sports car, two crocodiles as pets and £100,000 a week pocket money. What Joe actually needs more than anything is a friend, so he changes school in his quest to find the things that money can't buy.
Birmingham Stage Company's new production follows on the heels of other successful stage adaptations of Walliams' bestsellers, Awful Auntie and Gangsta Granny (which was nominated for an Olivier Award).
The show's designer is Jackie Trousdale, with lighting from Jason Taylor, sound from Nick Sagar and music from Jak Poore, and it's suitable for kids aged 5 and over.
