STORYTELLER John Kirk is bringing Jeremy Strong’s popular tale ‘The Hundred Mile an Hour Dog’ to Wilmslow Library to coincide with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

"I will be visiting Wilmslow Library again this summer - I have been a few times and always enjoy working with the staff and service users at what is a very welcoming library," said John.

"The Hundred Mile an Hour Dog by Jeremy Strong is a very silly story.  Its all about Streaker who is part greyhound part ferrari and Trevor's efforts to train her.

"The stakes are raised when they make a bet with arch pain Charlie Smugg.  If they can't train Streaker by the end of the school holiday they'll be forced to take a bath in frog spawn!

"Trevor enlists his best friend Tina and together with Streaker they have the craziest time you could imagine.

"My retelling lasts about 40 minutes and is suitable for families with children age six plus."

John will be at the library on Wednesday, August 9, from 10.30am to 12.15pm, and the storytelling is part of the Animal Agents summer reading challenge.
