Jeremy Strong’s “The Hundred Mile an Hour Dog”

Its my pleasure to announce that this summer I’ll be touring Jeremy Strong’s “The Hundred Mile an Hour Dog” to libraries across the UK to coincide with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the story its all about a boy who has a dog called Streaker.  Streaker is a mixed up dog; part whippet, part Ferrari and unless he can train her by the end of the Easter holidays there could be some pretty nasty consequences!

Like Roald Dahl’s “The Twits” the story is a huge slice of silly fun for families with children age 6+.  It also feels appropriate for me to tell it what with Lauren (my wife) being a vet.  The story is presented with kind permission from David Higham Associates and although not all the dates are in yet I can tell you that I am visiting Wakefield, Derby, Nottingham, east Cheshire and Northamptonshire this summer.

I’m looking forward to it but watch this space for an even more special announcement due in the next fortnight (eek!)
