Waterstones Says

The acclaimed picture book author embarks upon a seriously silly series for middle grade readers featuring two runaway foxes, a ferocious street-cat called Princess Buttons and a wild wood packed full of hilariously weird animal characters.

Laugh your head off with this fully-illustrated new series from award-winning Nadia Shireen. 

Fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy are on the run from Princess Buttons, the scariest street cat in the Big City. They flee for Grimwood, expecting to find refuge in the peaceful countryside. Instead, they are met with thieving eagles, dramatic ducks, riotous rabbits and a whole host of unusual characters. Grimwood is . . . weird. But when Princess Buttons tracks them down, Nancy and Ted and the animals of Grimwood must unite in a mind-bending race against time ...

This memorable, distinctive and warm-hearted comedy series will have kids begging to read more.

You'll giggle and gasp at the antics of the characters of Grimwood. The first couple of chapters felt a little disjointed but the book hit its stride when we get to Grimwood itself. The characters are vivid and... More

“Success!”

My six year old grandson has loved and gone through all the Dogman books. This captivated him from the start and he has read and re- read it. Highly recommended.

“Fun by the bucketload!”

Gloriously silly but in a way that tickles the funnybone of adults as well as kids - I really enjoyed reading this one aloud and properly got into the performance of it. Villain is brilliant. Heroes are fantastically... More
