Dirty Bertie Horror! By Alan MacDonald (Stripes, £4.99)

Mischievous troublemaker Dirty Bertie is back for a three-part Halloween horror-themed special. As you would expect there are more hijinks, not particularly sensible ideas and disgusting habits. From sneaking into a scary film without his nan and her horrible date noticing, to accidentally ruining a priceless work of art on a school trip and getting to grips with a evil dog on his paper round route, it’s a collection of hilarious stories that will have young readers on the edge of their seats.

As we’ve come to expect from award-winning illustrator David Roberts and writer Alan MacDonald, each entertaining tale is split into chapters and roughly thirty pages long, so it’s ideal for reluctant readers or those with a short attention span. Boys especially will identify with Bertie and appreciate the gross out humour, especially David’s laugh-out-loud illustrations that bring each story to life.
