The Giggler Treatment written by Roddy Doyle

This book is hilarious! I should start by saying that it is an easy read, not a ton of depth, but captivating and laugh-inducing, for sure! My fourth graders have been pushed this whole year, reading higher level texts and analyzing various close reads. I'm thinking that after the state tests this book will be a treat!

So, The Giggler Treatment takes place in England, so there is a glossary with British lingo. Kinda cool. The basic premise is that "gigglers" are little monsters who sneak around, discovering which adults are not so nice to kiddos, and then giving them the giggler treatment. Of course, the giggler treatment is stepping in dog poo!

In this text, the gigglers are mistakenly giving Mister Mack the giggler treatment, and it is up to his children, wife, and a neighborhood dog to save the day! Will they make it in time? Read to find out!
