Grk is an absolutely delightful dog who along with his schoolboy friend gets up to all sorts of tricks and mayhem.

Well-written, utterly gripping and funny too this series is sure to appeal greatly to boys and girls alike particularly if action and adventure 007 or Alex Rider style is what they’re after but for a slightly younger audience. Joshua Doder will be at The Cheltenham Book Festival in October. For more details click here. Other grk books include Grk and the Pelotti Gang, A Dog Called Grk, and finally Grk Smells a Rat.
