The Lovereading4Kids comment
In Horror! join Bertie as he sneaks into a scary film, meets a bad-tempered guard dog on his paper round and ruins a priceless work of art on a school trip! Bertie continues to delight children with his crazy plans, madcap ideas, and of course, disgusting habits. An expert in all things yukky, there’s nothing Bertie likes more than to be surrounded by worms, fleas, bogeys, burps and suspicious smells... And if his enthusiastic young readers are anything to go by, he’s not alone!
The Good Book Guide Review. Bertie is a boy with disgusting habits who always gets into trouble and whose exploits never go according to plan. This book contains three of his hilariously funny and brilliantly illustrated madcap adventures: a trip to the cinema with Bertie’s gran; an accident in an art gallery; and a run-in with a large dog called Brutus. (Ages 7–9)
