Ideal for children aged 7+ this is a perfect holiday read from the King of comedy that is full of slapstick humour and laugh-out-loud adventure. When Streaker goes on her summer holidays, hilarious misadventures aren't far behind as he runs like a jet-propelled hurricane wherever she goes along with her new found canine friend. But much to their surprise they're not the only ones causing chaos in the campsite. Someone is up to no good and it's up to Streaker and her erstwhile companion to save the day.
A Message from Jeremy Strong “If I've had any hopes for writing they have been mostly concerned with helping young children become readers for life, whilst at the same time giving myself the double joy of making them laugh and getting paid for it! For me, thereâ€Ÿs no better job. I have been very fortunate to get this far, fortunate with both my readers and my publishers to whom I am most grateful. It's a disconcerting feeling, and an exciting one too, to know that you've published a hundred titles for children. I find myself sitting here thinking: how on earth did all that happen? When did I do all that? I have spent the last thirty seven years writing and publishing, nevertheless it certainly doesn't feel like thirty seven years. Ten feels more like it, and even that seems a lot.”
Kidnapped! The-Hundred-Mile-an-Hour Dog's Sizzling Summer is the laugh-a-minute 100th title by Jeremy Strong. When Streaker goes on her summer holidays, hilarious misadventures can't be far behind.
