Calling all Dirty Bertie fans! Dirty Bertie - the boy with nose-pickingly disgusting habits - is back for another helping of comic chaos! With ever-increasing madcap schemes and crazy capers, Bertie continues to delight his legions of fans, who revel in his revolting ways.

Join Bertie in MASCOT!, his 30th adventure, as he is picked to be the mascot for Pudsley Rovers, attempts to get himself expelled from a geeky summer camp and designs his very own robot, a Bootosaurus, to replace Miss Boot!

DIRTY BERTIE is a hugely popular series created and illustrated by award-winning illustrator, David Roberts (TYRANNOSAURUS DRIP, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS, THE TROLL, THE EDDIE DICKENS TRILOGY) and written by award-winning author, Alan MacDonald (ASK OSCAR, THE PRINCE OF PANTS, SUPERHERO SCHOOL). With each hilarious story approximately thirty pages long and split into chapters with illustrations on nearly every spread, DIRTY BERTIE is ideal for confident readers to enjoy by themselves, or for sharing with your child.

Gave this book to my 10 year old son who usually hates having to read - well, this book he actually sat and read, and didn't complain when asked to do so! He says: I loved Dirty Bertie books when I was little, and didn't know there were more stories for older kids. I really liked this book, the stories were funny and made me laugh, I think i'd quite like to be Bertie's friend! I read this instead of my school reading books, and it was so much better!

The Book was lovely as the main character (Dirt Bertie) was very creative. The Book is about Dirty Bertie having lots of adventures. I think that the Author Alan Macdonald has a lovely imagination. I enjoyed reading this book as it was full of beautiful illustrations. I would like to recommend this book to young children who like football.

RJ has read many other Dirty Bertie books so as soon as he saw this one he knew he'd enjoy reading it. Three very funny short stories that RJ could read himself and very much interested him. His favourite was Mascot and Dirty Bertie wearing the the lions feet home. All in all a fantastic book for a 6/7 year old boy, not to mention great illustrations which make my son giggle. Would recommend the whole series

Not only is this book written by one of my favourite authors it also includes my favourite sport football. The book is very funny on the adventures and disasters following bertie as a football mascot. I would definitely recommend this book for a good giggle.

Usual antics with Bertie and friends. This is a great book for independent reading. My 7yo used to really enjoy the books but has moved onto Harry Potter and dinosaur quest so didn’t really enjoy this book as much as ones he’s had in the past. Three stories with about 3-4 chapters make these books ideal for school runs or bedtimes. I think they are great for 7yo’s it’s just my son is reading above his reading age

My 5 year old loves me reading him this series of books. Although some of the storylines are for slightly older children these stories really hold his attention. What child doesn’t like hearing about the naughty/unfortunate events of a mischievous boy? Each book has 3 different sections with 4 chapters in each. This is about the perfect length for his bedtime story.

0I’ve read pretty much all of the dirty Bertie books but this is one of my favourites as it’s funny especially when Berties Bootasauras enters the robot competition.Also I like when he imagines how impressed Ms Boot would be when she finds out Bertie is Larry the Lion.
