Review:

Sometimes, even the most simple of tasks can turn into an extremely hazardous adventure: take the poor boy walking to the dentist in Colin McNaughton's Good News, Bad News. One minute he is walking down the street minding his own business. The next, he is confronted by a host of horrid characters, all determined to stop him reaching his destination..

This clever and unusual book is filled with comedy and suspense, and will fuel any young reader's imagination. A great book for sharing, and ideal for more reluctant readers, Good News, Bad Newsis a quirky little gem. (Ages 5-7) --Susan Harrison
