Dougal has a problem. It’s in his shed and worrying him so much he’s writing his will!

I loved meeting Dougal. He’s an absolute star. I did wonder whether my middle aged female identity was affecting my judgement but I’m convinced that Dougal Daley: It’s Not My Fault will appeal equally well to children in the 7-11 age group as it did to me, because Dougal says things that all children think and feel at some points in their lives.

I liked the variety of textual approach so that there is never too much text at once for readers of all abilities to get to grips with. There’s plenty of white space, super illustrations and a wide variety of fonts in the notes and messages from Dougal’s friends which mean there’s something for everyone. I do have a slight qualm about some notes in entirely upper case or random mixed case as that’s a pet issue for me when teaching children to write, because it is better to model the correct versions, but these aspects are well separated form the main text. The illustrations are perfectly in tune with the text so that they add an extra layer of enjoyment to the read.

The plot is brilliant. It’s exciting and interesting. The scrapes Dougal gets into will resonate with all children, from accidentally breaking things to getting into trouble at school and falling out with friends. Indeed, there are loads of themes that could help struggling children discuss their own issues such as death, friendships, bullying, school and family relationships. That’s not to say Dougal Daley: It’s Not My Fault is preachy or dull – far from it. The humour is wonderful, especially those moments around the dog.

Dougal himself is a triumph of a character. He is accident prone, funny and charming – even at his worst. I thought Dougal Daley really was a superhero!

Review on behalf of OBC Mini Reviewers ~Review by Amy-Lee~

This book, even though its not my usual kind of read had me in fits of laughter and really, how many kids write a will?! But i guess when a creature is after you you want to make sure your toys are going to the right people lol

In a typical boy style where nothing is ever his fault, Dougal is so over the top dramatic (like the boys in my class) i couldn’t help but laugh along with him. This book was fun to read and action packed from beginning to end

I loved the illustrations but then who doesn’t? It was like the doodles you see on comic books, there to add to the story as well as telling there own little one at the same time…… a picture can say a thousand words….. and these did :)
