Jeremy Strong - The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog - Master Of Disguise

Giggle all the way to the end of the latest story from King of Comedy, Jeremy Strong


I remember when I was at Junior school we actually got a visit from Jeremy Strong himself. I can't remember when or why but I remember getting a signed copy of a book that i found hilarious and reading it over and over again. Im a bit gutted i actually don't know where it is... I was hoping my mum was going to find it when she moved... but she didn't :(    


When we were asked if we would like to review one of his books I couldn't decline. I couldn't wait to sit down with Taylor to read it... OK i'll admit I had a sneak peek one evening but made myself put it down before I read the whole book.


The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog is an eight book collection. Streaker, is a rocket on four legs with a woof attached. She's brilliant at many things but most of all she's brilliant at getting into trouble! 

In this book She is on the run again! There’s a mysterious pet-napper at large. Dad wants to send Streaker to behaviour boot camp and Trevor and Tina think they can save her with hair extensions and dye! No wonder Streaker is desperate to escape.

Jeremy didn't let me down... its brilliant. Taylor really enjoyed it and has picked it up within minutes of us returning home from our Summer holiday adventures. 



The book is perfect for his age. From the size of the writing, The language used and still having Pictures throughout the book.   


Taylor has already asked me to get the rest of the collection so he can read them form start to finish. I know its a while away but i have written it down as a gift idea for christmas :) Got to be prepared right! 

To be honest i was surprised when I was offered to review a NEW Jeremy Stone book, I just assumed he wouldn't be writing anymore. I buy most of the boys books form super markets so I hardly go into WHSmiths or Waterstones where i would find Jeremy Strong books. Now i know new books are still being written and Taylor enjoys reading them i will go in just to look for them. 


Do you have an author that you used to read as a young child that is still releasing new books? Do you children like them as much as you?


Thanks for reading
With Love
