Dirty Bertie, the boy with nose-pickingly disgusting habits, returns for another helping of comic chaos in the 19th book of this successful series.

Synopsis

Toothy! by Alan MacDonald

Join Bertie as he takes a reluctant trip to the dentist, tries to keep his cool on the hottest day of the year, and causes a mid-air emergency whilst flying with a very nervous Dad!

To celebrate a decade, Bertie is also hitting the web for the first time from April 2013 at www.dirtybertiebooks.co.uk where you can find info on all the books in the series, watch David Roberts’ guide to drawing Dirty Bertie, download an activity pack and enter a competition, as well as playing on Bertie’s interactive soundboard app.

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.
