Dirty Bertie: Pong!

The noxious nipper with heaps of horrible habits is back. And for once, he’s not causing a big stink! In fact, believe it or not, he’s making friends with soap – trying to bathe a very smelly Whiffer! But will it all end in disaster? Well, needless to say, Bertie can’t keep his hands clean for long. And soon he’ll be giving Miss Boot the fright of her life on a school trip, and having a sneaky hand in the design of a new school uniform! Prepare to split your sides as Dirty Bertie causes chaos in his latest book of disgustingly smelly adventures!

Praise for the series:

“Highly accessible and enjoyable.” Achuka

“Lots of grime. Plenty of chaos. Strong illustrations. Great fun!” Books for Keeps
