Comedian turned children's author David Walliams will be in Birmingham singing copies of his new book this morning.

He'll be at Waterstones in High Street from 11:30am to sign copies of his latest offering 'Ratburger'.

It's the fifth book by Walliams and this time follows the story of a girl called Zoe who is down on her luck - she's got a lazy grandma who makes her pick her nose for her, and the local burger shop worker wants to steal her pet rat.

He's fast becoming one of the most popular children's authors in the country and his writing style is being compared to Roald Dahl.
