Oliver Fibbs 2: The Giant Boy-Munching Bugs by Steve Hartley


Oliver Fibbs 2: The Giant Boy-Munching Bugs by Steve Hartley

Hi! I'm Oliver Tibbs (some people call me 'Oliver Fibbs') and sometimes my life gets a little DAB - Dull And Boring. So from time to time I 'get creative' with the truth at Show and Tell. But this time something exciting REALLY HAS happened! Dad has been bitten by a strange tropical insect, and struck down with Wenghi Benghi Fever. It's highly likely the bugs will get me too - and I'll break out in green spots, orange boils, a red rash and probably turn into a bloodsucking zombie killer - like Agent Q in my favourite comic!


This book is fantastic. It's really funny and I really enjoyed reading every chapter. I can't wait to read the other Oliver Fibbs books. The Ilford Recorder they all loved it, and I enjoyed reading the story to them and seeing how they were inspired by it ... Steve Hartley, your next book is eagerly awaited here! www.caterpillartales.co.uk Humour and excitement buzzes off the page as Oliver Fibbs launches into another infectious and exaggerated tale... Entertaining, fast paced and funny, it's no exaggeration to say Steve Hartley's new hero will be a hit with readers, reluctant or otherwise. Fun illustrations compliment the lively text, including the seamless flow into sections of comic strips that bring Oliver's imagination to life. Carousel

About the Author

Steve Hartley

Steve Hartley is a sensible man. He has a sensible job, a sensible family, lives in a sensible house and drives a sensible car. But underneath it all, he longs to be silly. There have been occasional forays into silliness: Steve has been a football mascot called Desmond Dragon and has tasted World Record success himself - in both a mass yodel and a mass yo-yo! But he wanted more, and so his alter ego Danny Baker Record Breaker was created. Steve lives in Lancashire with his wife and daughter. You can find out more about him on his extremely silly website.
