About: The third in the Skoz the Dog series, this is my favourite yet!

In this instalment, Skoz the sleepwalking dog wakes up as he’s fired out of a canon at the circus. And that’s just the beginning.

Skoz is made part of each and every circus act, performing with the clowns, trapeze artists, snakes, horses, burning hoops and even tigers. He begins to think that waking up falling from the air (as he does in book number two) was actually easy.

Amidst his usual panic, Skoz manages to somehow take all the challenges in his stride and work his way out of the crazy circus and find his owner once again.

This is a non-stop adventure that simply can’t be put down. Packed with action, excitement, twists and turns, readers will pick this up and – parents be warned – stay up half the night reading to the end.

Another funny story, full of character, from Daddo.
