A New Go-To…Dirty Bertie: Germs!

Dirty Bertie is a series imported from the UK. Bertie is kind of a stinker. He’s just the right amount of creative and mischievous so as to keep readers (even reluctant ones) reading and parents ok with it. In Germs! Bertie has three main problems: figuring out how to catch his sister’s chicken pox, how to help his Gran win a ballroom dancing competition (with no prior dance experience), how to deal with his new babysitter (who happens to look like Frakenstein’s monster). Bertie’s resourcefulness shines through as he solves these problems (each covered in a chapter of this three chapter book).

Readers will enjoy this book’s pace (especially the three chapter format), illustrations and Bertie’s rough and tumble charm. The book is a read alike for the Wimpy Kid series and Roald Dahl titles like Matilda.
