There is never a dull moment at Wigglesbottom Primary, where adventure and mystery are never far away. And who better than the year two pupils to solve these puzzles as they arise? Can Barney the dog really fly? Are there any real potatoes in the cafeteria mash? And what planet is Susie Keys’ strange alien egg from?
Consisting of three short tales which are funny, imaginative and easy to read, Super Dog is the exciting new book in the Wigglesbottom Primary series from award-winning author Pamela Butchart!
Q&A with Pamela Butchart
If you could have a power like Super Dog, what would it be?
Good question! DEFINITELY the power of invisibility. Then I could be even nosier than I am now. I'd love to sneak into all the places we're not allowed to go. Like Buckingham Palace, Edinburgh Castle after-hours and maybe sneak in to other people's houses to see what they're having for their tea. Is that creepy?
Did you have as much fun as the pupils of Wigglesbottom Primary when you were at school?
Oh yes! I'm sure my teachers would say I had TOO much fun. I had quite the imagination at school (and still do!). I often created drama, mayhem and panic out of nothing. There were letters home.
What do you think makes a good story?
Something based on real events. I think it's fun to take something that happened to you, perhaps something scary or funny, and then let your imagination run wild! You can add things that didn't happen and make it all bigger and more DRAMATIC. And maybe add some pugs.
