Synopsis

Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face and the Great Big Story Nickers by John Dougherty

Warning: This book contains nickers ...but NOT the frilly kind! It's summertime in Great Kerfuffle and Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face are off to the Loose Chippings library. But right in the middle of chapter seven, they suddenly find themselves in chapter nine!! What the heck is that all about? With Ninja Librarian, Miss Butterworth, trapped in chapter eight, our intrepid heroes journey through a bizarre collection of stories, meeting various pirates, zombies, animals, and Draxxar the Doombringer, in their quest to find their friend. But who on earth could be behind this evil and wicked story mix-up? Well, I'll give you a clue, they're stripy, they're black and white, and they're definitely NOT zebras ...

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
