It was funny when dirty Bertie disguised himself to pretend he was one of the parents at the dentist and when he fought the dentist with a giant tooth brush. I liked it when dirty Bertie pressed every button he could find on the aeroplane. Dirty Bertie was really excited to go on a plane. It was funny when he got an ice cream because Darren let him through a hole in the fence and he got to where an ice cream van but then the gate closed and there was a delivery and he said he was keeping the ice creams for others and then when no one was looking he sneaked in one of the boxes and got in the class room. Miss Boot was angry because she found out he'd been eating ice cream.

I recommend this book to all ages especially young kids.
It is such a funny book. My favourite part is were he finds out that his older sister Suzy is afraid of the dentist.

I was quite disappointed because it had three books in one and it did not say it in the front cover but the books were really good so if it did say there was three books i would not be disappointed.My favourite part was when they were fling Bertie wanted to go to the toilet and saw a button and he likes pressing buttons and he prrssed it and something bad happened.

A young, dirty boy named Bertie is constantly being told by his family: " No, Bertie! It's dirty!" Wether it be picking his nose, or trying to catch his sister's germs so he can stay home from school, Bertie is always doing something wrong. Along with his friends, he tackles life issues such as 'know all Nick' or Miss Boot, or the love struck Angela next door.

Funny because he doesn't like the dentist and his sister asked if he was a scaredy cat, and Berriedale said no, but when they went to the dentist, Berriedale had to be strapped in and he was really scared.

I think you should read it because it is a very discussing book and very funny at the same time.

I really liked this book because it isn't all one story but they all have the same characters. I particularly liked the story 'Zoom!'.

I liked that book because Dirty Bertie is messy and funny,he is funny because he runs away from the dentist.He is also messy because he picks his nose and eats it.

I liked the book because Bertie is a funny and hipper boy and I like the way he thinks. But the book is split into three completely different stories so does not flow as a whole book.
