Walliams has gone and done it again! With the release of The World’s Worst Children 3 just a couple of days before this week’s charts were compiled (and, incidentally, just in time for Father’s Day…), he has vaulted right to the top of the chart with over two thousand sales. It’s a pretty good week for Children’s books overall, actually, with the release of a new Skulduggery Pleasant: Midnight by Derek Landy (in the Top 20 at no. 11) and a new Jacqueline Wilson, Rose Rivers which has gone to no. 4 in Children’s. For the grown-ups, there’s a new release from Lorna Byrne to satisfy your spiritual side: Prayers From the Heart, which came out at the very end of May and has gone straight to the top of the Hardback Non-Fiction books.

This week’s featured book, though, is the warm, witty and wonderful Marian Keyes, with The Break newly out in paperback and into the charts at no. 4 for Mass Market Fiction and no. 6 in the overall charts. Here’s the blurb:

‘Myself and Hugh . . . We’re taking a break.’

‘A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?’

_____________

If only.

Amy’s husband Hugh says he isn’t leaving her.

He still loves her, he’s just taking a break – from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together.

Six months in South-East Asia. And nothing she says can stop him.

But when does a break become a break up?

For a lot can happen in six months. And it’s enough to send Amy and her family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers teetering over the edge.

When Hugh returns if he returns, will he be the same man she married?

Will Amy be the same woman?

Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then isn’t she?

_____________

‘Mercifully funny’ The Times

‘Just brilliant’ Sunday Times

‘I laughed . . . I cried’ Daily Mail

‘Full of darkness and light, this is Keyes at her classic and most brilliant best’ Red

And now moving on to the charts themselves, starting with the Top 20 and wrapping up with the Top 10 in each category:
