I’m Jackie Marchant and I write funny books about a boy called Dougal Daley, published by the wonderful Wacky Bee Books

Some of these messy items feature in the first book - including the plaster cast, the spider and the note about the creature in the shed.  Yes, he really did have a creature in the shed!
