CAUTION: contains misbehaving mutts and lots of laughs...
When Dudley the dog wishes he could eat all the cakes in the kitchen, he magically swaps bodies with his owner, ten-year-old Danny. Now Danny's the one who has to be on his best behaviour and Dudley's off the leash!
But disaster awaits when both Danny and Dudley go up against ruthless dog trainer Rex Power and his perfect pooch, Princess Fenella at the local dog show...
Second canine bodyswap caper featuring Danny – the boy trapped in a dog's body – and Dudley – the hapless dog who's hopeless at being human.
Before she became a writer, Caroline Green was a journalist and Paddington Bear obsessive (although not necessarily in that order). She has written bestselling crime novels (writing as Cass Green) and award-winning fiction for teenagers. Caroline lives in North London and teaches writing to both adults and children. There's a Dog in My Brain! is her first novel for younger children, in part inspired by the fact that she has an unusually good sense of smell (for a human).
Rikin Parekh studied at Camberwell College of Arts, then at the University of Westminster in Harrow. After working as a Film Production Illustrator working on monster movies, he moved to illustrating children's books, such as the Iguana Boy series and The Worst Class in the World books.
Those with a penchant for pooches, slapstick and perhaps cake will relish Caroline Green’s romp, that’s if it doesn’t render them barking mad. Rikin Parekh’s black and white illustrations add to the hilarity.
