I just had to order Brock despite never having heard of it before, as the concept of a story about badger baiting was too much to resist.
April 2015 now 3/10
I recommend all these books at work for this exact purpose, but have never heard of Brock before...will check it out thanks :-)
Horrid Henry should get more press here in the US. It's really a US-spirited sort of book.
