Jack's in trouble. Big trouble. Not only is he in hospital with a leg in traction (boring) but he knows the police are coming for him. Because of an accident - a tomato-related accident - involving a supermarket pyramid and an old-age pensioner. Whoops!
Jeremy Strong knows exactly what makes kids laugh, and he's on top form in this very funny detective spoof. A major rebranding and repackaging programme in 2007 will ensure there's not a child in the country who hasn't laughed their socks off with Jeremy!
Rowan Clifford's illustrations add to the fun.
Jeremy Strong won the Children's Book Award in 1997 with The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog. His series of Viking books has been made into a TV serial. He is immensely popular with children, particularly boys, who love his unique brand of silliness. He lives in Somerset.
