Barry Loser and the Trouble with Pets

Jim Smith


The eleventh book in this Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning series. Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dog Man, Tom Gates and Pamela Butchart.

As far back as Barry can remember, he’s always wanted a sausage dog. They’re like two of his favourite things (sausages and dogs) squidged together! Who cares if they bark the whole time, do poos everywhere, need three walks every day and stop you going to the cinema with your friends? Not Barry. Until he actukeely gets a real-life sausage dog, that is...

Join everyone's favourite Loser on his eleventh hilarious adventure.
