"A brilliant tale told with all the ingenuity of Michael Rosen and accompanied by the wonderful illustrations of Tony Ross."
On an ordinary morning, in an ordinary flat, an up-till-now perfectly ordinary Bertha does an extraordinary burp. A burp so extraordinary, it knocks things over. A burp so big that very soon it's causing havoc in the school canteen, the playground, not to mention her grandad's apple trees... Such a burptastic secret cannot stay quiet for long. And soon enough it lands Bertha her very own celebrity stardom...but is it all just a lot of hot air?
When Terri-Lee goes to the pet-shop she thinks she’ll be choosing a dog – she doesn’t expect the dog to be choosing her! But Crumble is no ordinary pet and he’s got a few questions to ask:
How many walks will you take me on? Do you like to dance? Will you tickle me? I like that a lot. Will Terri-Lee’s dance moves and answers be enough to convince Crumble that she could be his owner?
Don't Forget Tiggs!
Mr and Mrs Hurry are always rushing about. They never stop! But that means they forget some rather important things – like eating . . . and shopping . . . and taking their son Harry to school! Thankfully, Tiggs the cat is around to remind them. But will anyone remember to give Tiggs his dinner?

But when she decides to finally head home, she discovers things aren't exactly the same as when she left...
