Synopsis

Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face and the Great Kerfuffle Christmas Kidnap by John Dougherty

More fun than your average elf! The perfect book to get you in the mood for all the madness of Christmas! Christmas! A time of peace and goodwill ...and presents! But something's not right in Great Kerfuffle - instead of peace there's mayhem, and instead of goodwill there's evil and wickedness. And instead of presents, there's ...NO PRESENTS! Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face have been extra good this year so they know Father Christmas wouldn't forget them. Something must have happened to him - and now it's up to them to save Christmas (or at least find their presents!). The Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face books are hugely popular and this book will appeal to existing fans and is also an ideal present for newcomers. Written by hilarious author, John Dougherty, and illustrated by the talented David Tazzyman (illustrator of the Mr Gum books), this dream team has created a crazy world inhabited by unforgettable characters that children (and their parents!) love.

Reviews

a sure-fire winner for Mr Gum fans. * Metro (London) * Really, really, really funny! * Jake * Utterly silly and utterly splendid * Makingthemreaders * Infectiously silly * The Bookbag * Great fun, especially when read aloud. * Parents in Touch *

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.
