Rover, star of The Giggler Treatment and others, is back for a new and equally hilarious dog-poo centred adventure. As ever, Rover needs to collect dog poo to keep the Gigglers well-supplied. Assisted by his favourite nephew Messi, whose name does not capture his nature as he is actually a very tidy and organised dog – except when his own tail knocks him over, Rover knows he can deliver all the supplies the Giggler’s need. But can he also find the Big Fat Baby or BFB who has gone missing? It’s a wonderfully fast-paced, harum scarum adventure adventure of dastardly doggy goings on. ~ Julia Eccleshare
The BFB (Big Fat Baby) is missing! Can Rover the wonder dog and his little nephew Messi (who is actually very tidy) track her down? While Rover and co. are hot on the trail of the BFB, via Granny Mack's backpack, the post lady's basket and a plane bound for Africa, it looks like the Gigglers are about to run out of poo ...And without an urgent delivery from Rover, how will they be able to give the Giggler Treatment to grumpy adults and help kids all over the country?
Rover returns in a brand-new adventure in the bestselling series by Booker Prize-winner Roddy Doyle.
