I found David very inspiring, to write - about anything, not just children's books.

David Walliams's course is brilliant too - I have the idea and a story plan for my book - writing it now.

- Richard

I'm halfway through my @bbcmaestro course, Writing Books For Children, from @davidwalliams and it's brilliant!! His tips and guidance are enough for any budding children's writer! Shame it's only 25 lessons long!

- Lee

The real value, so far, lies in @davidwalliams descriptions of sources of inspiration & the collision of two different ideas. It's very inspiring to hear a successful writer talk about his craft. : )

- Claire

Plenty of information, advice and references to David's books as well as the works of other authors.
