Funny cringeworthy and one for the underdog!

Brilliantly read by Martin Clunes, Jeremy Strong is on top form with comic plot lines and likeable ( and dislikable) characters. The free spirited streaker and long suffering Trevor make a great team as they come against the bullying Sergeant Smug and his son Charlie.
The friendship and one sided love interest seamlessly joins great slapstick comedy scenarios leaving listeners/readers eager for more.

Entertaining!

The best part was when the dog jumped into the car. It was very good.

Primary 4/5

This is a mega fantastic book! We enjoyed the story because it was funny and interesting. We thought the structure was great and it was some of our favourite! We loved the characters because they worked together. We would highly recommend this to a wide range of ages.

We loved this

This was our first experience of Jeremy Strong and we really enjoyed it. Martin Clunes is a perfect choice for the narration.

The story has everything children need for a good contemporary story. If I were writing a newspaper review I would say "riotous", but it is funny, very funny in places.

This is one my son keeps coming back to and they do say that the proof of the pudding is in the tasting :-)

this is cool

Comment of my 9 year-old-son. It's very very good.



My kids love Jeremy Strong's storys of fun and may-hem, and there usually a few gags for Mum & Dad to chuckle at too.

Martin Clunes does a great job of 'telling' (not just reading) the story.
