Call Me Drog [School Edition] by Sue Cowing

Everything was fine until Drog showed up. Don't ask me why I picked him out of the trash - he just looked like an ugly old puppet. And I wish I had never put him on, 'cos no matter how hard I try, I can't get him off. Eleven-year-old Parker is trying to come to terms with his parents' divorce when he stumbles upon Drog, an ugly hand puppet left in the rubbish. But Drog is no ordinary puppet; he's a sarcastic, obnoxious, talking puppet...who won't let go of Parker's hand! The trouble is no one else believes Parker. How can he prove that he's not the one doing the talking, and how can he get Drog off his hand? Bold, crazy and a little bit creepy, Call Me Drog is an unforgettable coming-of-age story, perfect for study in the Key Stage 3 classroom.
