The Lovereading4Kids comment

Roddy Doyle’s writing will be enjoyed by even the most reluctant of readers. You may have anarchy in the house once the books have been read, for these stories don’t think much of adults but rest assured you’ll get some peace in the house until they are finished! Rover the mad hound saves the day each time but not without considerable consequences, too numerous to mention here but which you as a parent will hear about. We think this is one of the best presents you can give a child aged between 6 and 11. Please note the books are also available individually and are as follows:

The Meanwhile Adventures
Rover Saves Christmas


Roddy Doyle 3 in 1: The Giggler Treatment, Rover Saves Christmas, The Meanwhile Adventures by Roddy Doyle

The slipcase contains Roddy Doyle's three fabulously funny children's books about Rover the Wonder Dog and the eccentric Mack family.The poo is about to hit the shoe...

They waited for the wallop - Mr Mack hitting the poo.

The Meanwhile Adventures

Will they succeed? There's only one way to find out...

It's Christmas Eve, and Rudolph's got the flu!

Jimmie and Robbie Mack are so desperate for Christmas to come that they've left twenty-seven sandwiches out for Santa. But Rudolf is off sick and Santa's grounded the sleigh - with all the presents.

Will the big day be cancelled? Or can Rover the wonder-dog save Christmas? Well, what do YOU think?
