David Walliams' next children's book might just be his most adorable yet.

The comedian and Britain's Got Talent judge announced that his fourth release will be called The Bear Who Went Boo! and again feature illustrations from the award-winning Tony Ross.

Walliams fourth picture book after The Slightly Annoying Elephant, The First Hippo on the Moon and The Queen's Orang-utan tells the "boisterous tale of a very cheeky polar bear cub" who loves nothing better than startling other animals.

"A white bear in a white landscape - definitely a challenge, but a new text from David Walliams - always a delight," said Ross, best known for the Horrid Henry series.

Walliams praised Ross for another "magnificent job bringing [his] words to life".


Other than picture books, Walliams has also achieved success in children's fiction. His latest title, Awful Auntie, has sold more than 650,000 copies to date and will be followed by Grandpa's Great Escape in September.

The Bear Who Went Boo! will be published in hardback on 5 November, just in time for Christmas.
