Overview
What would you do if you accidentally created a barking-mad glove puppet, withsharp teeth, a fierce attitude and an unpredictable mouth?

A boy and a fast-talking terrier glove puppet form a hilarious double act in this warm and funny illustrated novel for readers eight years and older.


Twelve-year-old Freddie Foxworthy just wants to do arts and crafts. They're easier to deal with than his peers, and far more rewarding. His latest project is to create the perfect glove puppet from papier-mache. But when ashes from his metalhead neighbour's deceased bull terrier get into the mix, he accidentally makes a growling puppet with an unpredictable mouth!

Freddie has an overload of mysteries to solve - who is to blame for the late Masher's death? Was Masher responsible for the disappearance a neighbourhood cat? And, most of all, is Masher actually for real? Surely Freddie couldn't be causing all this chaos himself...

Masher is acclaimed author, illustrator and arts-and-crafts guru Fifi Colston's warm and funny novel about animal companions, imaginary friends, perceived enemies, and finding your happy place.

No dogs or papier-mache were harmed in the making of this book.
