In this book readers will join Bertie as he has a brush with some angry bees, deals with his warring grannies on a trip to the park and tries to smuggle Whiffer into a very smart hotel. Three stories in one book!

Book Review

This book had three interesting stories, I loved them all

This is the first time I have read a Dirty Bertie book and I thought it was funny.

It was about Bertie and his friends and the things that happened to them. This book had three interesting stories, I loved them all. The book was great but I wouldn’t call it my absolute favourite book.

Bertie is very mischievous and it’s funny reading about what he does.

I would recommend this book to children who are about 5-8 years old and like funny books.
