The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bertie is a delightful as he is dirty – if you like that kind of thing! He has a habit of picking his nose which is truly disgusting. This time he has a robot dog in tow and ends up getting into all kinds of new scrapes as a result.

Synopsis

Dirty Bertie: Fetch! by Alan Macdonald

Dirty Bertie - the boy with nose-pickingly disgusting habits - is back for another helping of comic chaos! Bertie finds himself in the dog house over his new robot dog, mistakes the Queen for one of his gran's friends at a royal garden party, and is tricked into getting a girlfriend for the school disco!

About the Author

Alan Macdonald

Alan was born in Watford and went to university in Bangor, North Wales, where he studied English and Drama. He started working life in a travelling theatre company, visiting schools all over the country & writing much of their material. He says it was a useful apprenticeship - if the audience didn't like the play, they talked through it or threw bits of paper at the actors. He very quickly learned what children liked.

A keen football fan, Alan has supported Watford FC since childhood. Many of his stories have a football focus - which he rates as the next best thing to playing for England! He dreamed of becoming a professional footballer, but when he won a pen in a writing competition, his fate was sealed. Alan has written over eighty children's books, which have been translated into many languages and won several awards.

In 2010, Dirty Bertie: Loo! was winner of the Leicestershire Children's Book Prize. Alan also writes for TV, including the hugely popular 'Horrid Henry' on CITV.

The Dirty Bertie series by Alan Macdonald is immensely popular, particularly with boys! We recently received this from one massive fan:

"The books are amazing and very imaginative...I love your books like Pants, Mud, Fleas and Worms and will continue to read lots." Abdullah D
