Ouch! by David Roberts written by Alan MaDonald (Dirty Bertie)

Dirty Bertie - the boy with nose-pickingly disgusting habits - is back for another helping in A&E after an accident with a door, forgets his swimming trunks on a visit to Splash City, and proves that Know-All Nick doesn't actually know everything at the Inter-schools Quiz Competition.

The fourteenth book in the very popular Dirty Bertie series. As usual there are three stories within the book and when reading them I could imagine my son doing each one! Having an accident with a hammer and ending up in A&E, 'borrowing' a pair of swimming shorts and reading the most weirdest, revolting factual book and remembering the strangest facts from it.

These books are perfect for boys who are beginning to gain confidence in their reading. Full of humour and, at times, revolting behaviour, they will be loved by boys of all ages and I would recommend them to all. My son has enjoyed reading them aloud and to himself and I am sure they will be loved if shared at bedtime.

The books are part of a series and there is plenty to keep fans of Dirty Bertie reading for ages. The illustrations are excellent accompaniments for the stories and are interspersed throughout the book. The text is perfect for readers aged 7+ but is suitable for younger children who will love to listen to the stories.

I would recommend this as a perfect gift for boys of all ages.

Thank you to Stripes Publishing for sending me this book to review.
