Good news! It's a beautiful day. Hooray!
Bad news! It's a school day. Boo!
Good news! You've got the day off. Hooray!
Bad news! To go to the dentist. Boo!

A boy's walk to the dentist becomes a hazardous adventure featuring a host of frightful characters. There is a surprise around every corner as he encounters such fearsome creatures as his worst teacher, aliens, a dinosaur, and a witch – each more terrifying than the last!

But it's all right, his luck is in… or is it? Will our hero ever arrive at the dreaded dentist? Is it good news, or bad news?

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
