The quite very actual terribibble twos

This is the second book from Worzel Wooface and is every bit as entertaining as the first book. It starts with Worzel being introduced to "Looks Like Snow" and all the shenanigans that brings for a lively dog, and progresses through the year with Worzel discovering more hilariously described things.
I particularly like the constant reminder of "Noo Near's Revolution" and the continual failure to make friends with Mabel the cat. A problem that doesn't really get solved in this book..... Worzel is always very close to getting into trouble as he pushes his boundaries to the brink. A typical teenager, you might say!
I like the way Worzel writes about his doggie friends. He describes their individual characters and I'm sure I have met at least one dog who fits every description. That is what makes these books so entertaining. Worzel tells a story and I understand his views because I have seen a lot of dogs behaving in the way he describes. Worzel and his friends come to life in this book.
My only criticism would be that on New Years Eve Worzel describes being rescued and what you can expect from a rescue (or any other) dog. I felt this was out of character with the rest of the book, as if Worzel had become sentimental and I'm not sure that dogs actually have that emotion.
I hope Worzel writes another book. I'll be looking forward to reading more about his antics.
