From award-winning Richard Byrne, author and illustrator of This Book Just Ate My Dog! (shortlisted for the Children's Book Award) comes another wonderfully inventive book starring Ben and Bella. It's a funny and original picture book where the book itself interferes with what happens on the page. Ben has a remote-controlled fire engine but when he presses the buttons on the remote the engine doesn't turn or spin or sound its siren. While Ben and Bella
scratch their heads over this, strange things are happening to Bella's dog! It's only when Ben tries the VOICE button on the remote control that Bella's dog is able to speak, warning them that 'This book is out of control!' Readers get the chance to press the buttons and witness the hilarious slapstick results
every time the page is turned. It's an interactive experience for the reader who ultimately has to help in restoring normality.
