The Mack books have had mixed success with me, and this is my least favourite for one big reason -- a total lack of charm. The first book, The Giggler Treatment , was packed full of charm. Little Gigglers, pissed off that adults would be mean to children, drop burning poo bombs at the feet of the mea Leggi tutto
4 Stars This book was really cute short book to read. I liked everything about this book form the characters and the writing of this book. This was a cute story for young adults. I love this book. I would maybe read this book again some time again in the future. Highly recommend this book to anyone t Leggi tutto
This one never grabbed me I am afraid. Two little girls who only speak the same one-line remark does not make for identifiable characters; the father who gets arrested does not tell the police that putting him in jail temporarily will leave small children unattended. There is no plot, except to scat Leggi tutto
Children will love the zany humour and outrageously impossible adventures in this short book. The various lightly linked plots have an effervescent quality which adds to the enjoyment. My only reservation is that I think that the references to Doyle’s earlier books near the end were unnecessary. But Leggi tutto

Not just for kids! This was a great family read aloud. Roddy Doyle rocks.
I had high hopes for this re-read. I remember my initial reading experience involved a lot of laughs, and huge love for Doyle's use of "meanwhile" to emphasize the several crazy plot lines going on. But this time, some of the plots just didn't weave together for me and the humour didn't click. In Th Leggi tutto
I first read this book in Year 6 after I was recommended it by my teacher at the time. I was a cheeky kid and this unsurprisingly is a cheeky book. The book is written in a very off the cuff way, very short chapters and spontaneous passages of text make this book a unique read. It’s very difficult n Leggi tutto
Purtoppo il libro non ha soddisfatto le attese. Mi sono pazzamente innamorato della scrittura di Doyle con Il trattamento Ridarelli , e speravo che questa sorta di continuazione potesse almeno avvicinarsi al suo livello. Invece sembra fiacco fin dall'inizio, e non riesce a risollevarsi, anche se lo s Leggi tutto
I adore Roddy Doyle’s stuff for adults, and this story for kids had all of his trademark humor. But I found the story too absurd for my particular taste. It was confusing to begin with and the charm of the characters didn’t come out until the very end. That, said, my 5-year-old granddaughter loved i Leggi tutto
