Mad Iris Goes Missing by Jeremy Strong
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 7+ Reading Age 8+. Jeremy Strong, creator of Streaker, the fastest and most out of control dog in the world, now brings readers Mad Iris. Iris is certainly a most unusual character. For a start she is an ostrich. In addition, she is an ostrich who prefers school to life on an ostrich farm. As a result, Mad Iris spends a lot of time in Pudding Lane School causing absolute chaos everywhere she goes.

In Mad Iris Goes Missing, Pudding Lane School adopts Mad Iris as the mascot for their Cup Final week. It should be a splendid idea but, at the critical moment, Mad Iris goes missing…

Mad Iris is also out now.There are jokes a-plenty in these two knockabout stories.

About the Author

Jeremy Strong

Jeremy Strong is a fantastic children's author. His books are side splittingly funny and once you have read one your children will be asking you to get more.

His work has a wide ranging appeal to the 7+ market (5-7s who are keen readers will love them too) especially to boys and tomboys. Jeremy was born in Eltham, South East London in November 1949. He has had a varied career path before becoming an author including jobs as a: Head Teacher, Caretaker, Strawberry Picker, Jam Doughnut Stuffer! His first published book was Smith's Tail in 1978 and he now lives in Kent.

Jeremy’s work is characterised by humour and direct child appeal. The books are packed with tongue in cheek gags and characters and situations that your children will love. He says of himself "My sense of humour got stuck at age ten." He thinks his writing has been influenced most of all by Spike Milligan, but also by falling on his head when he was three years old.

When he was about eighteen he started writing very serious stories for adults, but none of them were published. By the time he was twenty-one he was writing stories for children after realizing that he loved writing funny stories and making people laugh.

Five Things You Didn't Know About Jeremy Strong:
1. Jeremy Strong used to be Headmaster to The Diary of Dennis the Menace author, Steven Butler! Steven thanks Jeremy for helping to turn him from a reluctant reader, to an avid reader and finally a writer.

2. Jeremy's first book was called Smith's Tail and it was about a cat.

3. Jeremy once worked in a bakery, putting the jam into three thousand doughnuts every night.

4. Jeremy started writing stories when he was eight years old. When he was eighteen he started writing very serious stories for adults, but none of them were published. By the time he was twenty-one he was writing stories for children, and quickly realized that he loved writing funny stories and making people laugh.

5. If Jeremy wasn't a writer he would want to play the piano really, really well, or be a terrific artist.
