In a Nutshell: silliness – disguises - dogs
Jeremy Strong continues to set the standard in comic writing for children and his Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog series is a tour de force of silliness. Trevor’s dog Streaker is behaving as badly as ever and after a particularly unfortunate incident involving Trevor’s dad, a stepladder, wallpaper paste and an escaped chicken called Captain Birdseye, she’s threatened with dog boot camp. Trevor is determined not to let this happen and with his NOT-girlfriend Tina works out a clever plan. Meanwhile, someone is kidnapping dogs, the fancier, the better. The plot proceeds at the kind of speed even Streaker would be pushed to match and this is joyfully, inspiringly ludicrous. Fans will be more than satisfied. ~ Andrea Reece
A Message from Jeremy Strong “If I've had any hopes for writing they have been mostly concerned with helping young children become readers for life, whilst at the same time giving myself the double joy of making them laugh and getting paid for it! For me, thereâ€Ÿs no better job. I have been very fortunate to get this far, fortunate with both my readers and my publishers to whom I am most grateful. It's a disconcerting feeling, and an exciting one too, to know that you've published a hundred titles for children. I find myself sitting here thinking: how on earth did all that happen? When did I do all that? I have spent the last thirty seven years writing and publishing, nevertheless it certainly doesn't feel like thirty seven years. Ten feels more like it, and even that seems a lot.”
