Cool Things To Do Before I Cack It Number One: Have real sexual intercourse with a girl (preferably Michelle Malloy and definitely NOT on a train or any other mode of transport . . . if it's possible at her house). Number Two: Fight heaven and earth, tooth and nail, dungeons and dragons that people stop slagging my mate Amir because he smells like a big pot of curry. And, help him find a new best bud. Number Three: Get dad back from the war before . . . you-know-what . . . happens. Dylan Mint has Tourette's. For Dylan, life is a constant battle to keep the bad stuff in - the swearing, the tics, the howling dog that escapes whenever he gets stressed. And, as a sixteen-year-old virgin and pupil at Drumhill Special School, getting stressed is something of an occupational hazard. But then a routine visit to the hospital changes everything. Overhearing a hushed conversation between the doctor and his mother, Dylan discovers that he's going to die next March. So he grants himself three parting wishes: three `Cool Things To Do Before I Cack It'. It isn't a long list, but it is ambitious, and he doesn't have much time. But as Dylan sets out to make his wishes come true, he discovers that nothing - and no-one - is quite as he had previously supposed. A story about life, death, love, sex and swearing, When Mr Dog Bites will take you on one *#@! of a journey . . .

“A barking good read”

I received When Mr Dog Bites to review as part of the lucky dip prize draw, and if that had not been the case it would not have been a book I would have chosen to read. Having said that I am glad I had the chance to... More

“A story about life, death, love, sex and swearing.”

I have never been so conflicted whilst writing a review for a book. There was a single moment early on (page 22) with a casual comment about a character making a sound like ‘a cat being gang-raped by some dingoes’ and... More

“When Mr Dog Bites”

This story is told entirely through the voice of 16-year-old Dylan and initially I found his use of rhyming slang, puns and general 'teenage boy' language extremely irritating (the swearing wasn't a... More
