Book Description

Meet Measle Stubbs, the small hero on a BIG adenture
[Praise for previous edition]: stink is what Ogilvy does best. This is a book that smells superbly foul. Teachers and parents take note: this would make for the perfect, serialised read-aloud before going home, going to bed or going spare. (Michael Rosen, Guardian )

A terrific tale in every sense (Amanda Craig, The Times )

This is the kind of . . . Tale in which youngsters triumph by being courageous and clever. And there's always a place in children's reading for that (Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times book of the week )

A terrific adventure in which the writing and the invention burst into life (Jan Mark, Times Educational Supplement )

Ian Ogilvy's first novel for children is a triumph, a hugely inventive Dahl-esque adventure in which the pace never flags and the reader's attention never allowed to wander (Books for Keeps )nture!"
