Author(s): Jeremy Strong
Jack's in trouble, big trouble. Not only is he in hospital with a leg in traction (boring) but he knows the police are coming for him: because of an accident - a tomato-related accident - involving a supermarket pyramid and an old-age pensioner. Whoops! Jeremy Strong knows exactly what makes kids laugh, and he's on top form in this very funny detective spoof. A major rebranding and repackaging programme in 2007 will ensure there's not a child in the country who hasn't laughed their socks off with Jeremy! Rowan Clifford's illustrations add to the fun.
Strong's books are hugely popular with young children with their breezy, daft exuberance Sunday Times His books crackle with good humour and invention TES King of comedy Guardian His books are preposterously entertaining Observer
