Dirty Bertie Jackpot book review

We were really spoilt for choice by the selection of books available from Little Tiger Press to review currently. They have 5 new titles out this month, aimed at a range of ages from 5-11. I decided to let son2 choose one to review, as son1 was already waiting for Shoutykid 2 to arrive. It took son2 a while to make his mind up, but he eventually opted for Dirty Bertie Jackpot.

Although this is the 25th adventure in the popular series, it is the first Dirty Bertie book that either of the boys have read. Son2 kept asking all Easter holiday when it was going to come, so was very excited when his free book turned up the Saturday after going back to school.

Dirty Bertie Jackpot is written by Alan MacDonald and illustrated by David Roberts. The book consists of three short stories – Jackpot, Crumbs and Demon Dolly. Dirty Bertie, the main character is a boy with nose-pickingly disgusting habits, so guaranteed to make my son laugh.

Son2 loved the book and he tells you all about it in this video.

This paperback book currently retails at £4.99 and is published by StripesPublishing, a division of children’s book publishing company Little Tiger Press. You may purchase it online from Little Tiger Press. It is targetted at children age 6-8.

Son2 also enjoyed the activities on the Dirty Bertie website especially the smelly soundtrack.

This is the fifth book that son2 has reviewed from Little Tiger Press. He previously reviewed their Halloween Sticker Activities book, The Magical Snow Garden, The Forgotten Puppy and Zip It.

The other new books out this month are
Adventures of the Steampunk Pirates: Attack of the Giant Sea Spiders (age 6-8)
Knightmare: Foul Play! (age 5-8)
Maisie Hitchins: The Case of the Weeping Mermaid (age 7-9)
SWARM: Target Silverclaw (age 9-11)

I’d love to hear what is your favourite book from Little Tiger Press?

    My daughter is about to finish the Harry Potter series-I worried that at aged almost 9 she might find the last couple too much but it seems not! I’m on the lookout for new series and stories to appeal to her as I know she will be bereft when she comes to the end. The SWARM series look like something she would definitely be interested in reading-she loves adventures and spies 🙂
