I m going to make a rocket! I announced. Make a rocket? spluttered Stinky. You d struggle to make a sandwich. He was always a bit cranky when he s just woken up. Nine year old Benjamin Jinks and his super-brainy hamster, Jasper Stinkybottom, are back and this time they re shooting for the moon! But can the pair triumph at the science fair, despite their neighbours shady plotting? Or will their experiment bring them back down to earth with a thump? Dave Lowe s latest adventure is brilliantly brought to life by illustrator Mark Chambers in this hilarious read.
Born in Dudley in the West Midlands, Dave Lowe taught English for four years in a high school for disadvantaged kids in Istanbul, and has also worked in Malaysia and Australia. He is married with two daughters. When he was younger, Dave also had a pet hamster, but he didn t talk so much.
