Synopsis

Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face and the Badness of Badgers by John Dougherty

Winner of the Great Kerfuffle Best Book of Last Tuesday Hey you! No, not you - the person behind you. No, not him either. Left a bit, left a bit more ...You! Oh for goodness sake ...never mind ...Dear Everyone (including you!)! Welcome to the world of Great Kerfuffle! It's really great. And there's usually a kerfuffle (the clue's in the name really). Come and join our intrepid heroes Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face as they set off on a highly dangerous and nail-biting adventure (or it may just be very silly and mildly perilous!). Oh, and there might be a few dodgy badgers hanging about too ...Meet the funniest collection of characters ever known to mankind in this stupendously hilarious book that will make you laugh your socks off, and quite possibly your ears too.

Reviews

I thought this book was hilarious. I read it in one go as the story was so funny. Warning: Side effects include tears of laughter, crazy laughing and aching cheeks! This book must be read in one go as it is so good and you won't be able to put it down. Charlotte, aged 9 This book is really funny - it's just hilarious. The start of the book was brilliant - it made me laugh out loud. In fact the whole book made me laugh out loud many times. I one hundred per cent think everyone else will like this book. Owen, aged 8 We have just the last chapter to go. The class love it and wouldn't let me put it down. Sian Downs, Year 4 teacher I had to read this after hearing Owen laughing so much! This book should come with a warning - Be careful, this book will make you want to read aloud to strangers just to show how funny it is! Sally Batten Even reluctant readers will be drawn in by the amusing pictures and the good use of varied font styles which makes the book appealing and not in the least daunting. Great fun, especially when read aloud. Parents in Touch This wonderfully zany story is perfectly paired with the scratchy stylings of David Tazzyman

About the Author

John Dougherty

John Dougherty was born in Larne, Northern Ireland. He studied psychology at university and then tried his hand at a number of jobs including YMCA hostel worker, factory machine operator, and unsuccessful singer-songwriter, before becoming a primary school teacher.

Whilst John was teaching, his interest in children's literature was reawakened and he soon began writing stories and pestering publishers with them. After the publication of Zeus on the Loose (2004) he left teaching and took up writing full-time, only with more tea breaks. More recent books include the critically-acclaimed Stinkbomb & Ketchup-Face series and his poetry collection, Dinosaurs & Dinner-Ladies.

His books have been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards and chosen for various book of the week/year roundups by the broadsheets, but more importantly, they make children giggle.
