Peppersmith tingz 100% xylitol sweets - Strawberry&hellip by Peppersmith
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasn't sure what to expect with these sweets, never having seen them before. I was hoping for a chewy texture, similar to soft mints, but they are not like that at all. They are hard and have a chemical, fake taste to them which I found very unpleasant.

When Mr Dog Bites is another book in a line of stories about mentally ill or disabled children over the past few years, following the likes of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the Perks of Being a Wallflower. Like those stories, the narrative is told by the child himself and therefore is written in a unique style. Sadly, When Mr Dog Bites - the story of a 16-year old named Dylan who suffers from Tourette's - takes this one step further, making this a very frustrating and disjointed read.
