Publisher: Little Tiger Press Group
This is the twenty sixth book in the popular Dirty Bertie series of books. Dirty Bertie is a lovable little boy, who has nose-pickingly disgusting habits, who children adore reading about. Each book contains three stand alone stories and tell the tales of Dirty Bertie at his disgustingly worst.
Aliens tells the story of Bertie as he visits the local library to listen to a talk about UFO's and which leaves Bertie certain he has met with real aliens!
These books are perfect for young readers, who are developing their reading skills, and are wanting more than basic story picture books. The three stories within each book are split into manageable chapters which are perfect to be shared at bedtime or for a child to read themselves. There are a number of illustrations throughout the book which break up the text but leave the young readers proud that they have read a 'proper' book.
Dirty Book is a great character which is loved by both girls and boys alike and I remember my son falling in love with reading through both Dirty Bertie and Horrid Henry. For young girls who like these sort of characters, David Roberts and Alan MacDonald have also written books about Angela Nicely too.
I received this book in return for an honest review from the publishers, Stripes Books.
