A classic Jean Ure story for girls AND boys, about a boy who’s driving girls wild...
Dorian Jones is an 11-year-old boy who is having ‘terrible trouble with girls’. They just won't leave him alone.
Girls at school and his annoying younger sisters' friends have massive crushes on him, but Dory's passion is for dinosaurs and he is happiest excavating his back garden. His best friend at school is Aaron and his best friend out of school is a girl called the Herb. How will Dory stop girls throwing themselves at him? Why is Aaron holding hands with Sophy Timms? And why is the Herb acting so strange around Dory all of a sudden...
