About this product
- DescriptionEverything was fine until Drog showed up. Don't ask me why I picked him out of the trash - he just looked like an ugly old puppet. And I wish I had never put him on, 'cos matter how hard I try, I can't get him off. Eleven-year-old Parker is trying to come to terms with his parents' divorce when he stumbles upon Drog, an ugly hand puppet left in the rubbish. But Drog is ordinary puppet; he's a sarcastic, obxious, talking puppet...who won't let go of Parker's hand! The trouble is one else believes Parker. How can he prove that he's t the one doing the talking, and how can he get Drog off his hand? Bold, crazy and a little bit creepy, Call Me Drog is an unforgettable coming-of-age story, perfect for study in the Key Stage 3 classroom.
- Author BiographySue Cowing grew up in Galesburg, Illinois, a town much like Ferrisburg, where Parker lives. After teaching history and Asian studies at La Pietra School in Honolulu, Sue earned an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and began writing poetry and children's fiction full-time. Sue remains fascinated by Chinese and Japanese culture, and practises t'ai chi and taiko drumming in her home in Hawaii. She found Drog's voice after she made her own funny, green puppet. Call Me Drog is her debut novel.
