What's the Matter, Royston Knapper? by Gervase Phinn

Royston Knapper is heading for trouble! Penelope Pringle is always on his case. Teachers, parents and even his best mates seem to think he's the naughtiest boy around. How much chaos can a single schoolboy create? Eleven-year-old Royston Knapper is always up to mischief and in trouble as he disrupts his classroom, tricks his father, and brings home a vicious dog. In this collection of five short stories, the author depicts the adventures of this loveable rogue with his usual level of humour.
