The Lovereading4Kids comment

Parents may well not enjoy Doyle’s brilliant adventures about creatures that dream up devilish punishments to get back at adults, but rest-assured kids absolutely love it. Highly amusing characters and tales that are full of mischief all add up to a story that children really identify with. Great illustrations too that really brings the story to life. Kids as young as 6 or 7 and as old as 10 or 11 will love it. Sequels to The Giggler Treatment are the madcap Rover saves Christmas and The Meanwhile Adventures. This title is also available in audio CD.

Also available in a 3 books in 1 collection featuring all three Rover titles from Roddy Doyle.


Giggler Treatment by Roddy Doyle

They waited for the wallop - Mr Mack hitting the poo.
They waited for the squelch - Mr Mack stepping on the poo.
They waited for the groan - Mr Mack seeing that most of the poo was now on his show.

Who are the Gigglers? Good Question. The Gigglers look after children. And they do it very well...


"Roddy Doyle is an absolute genius!" J.K. Rowling
