Booker Prize-winning author Roddy Doyle delivers his first book for children -- and it's guaranteed to make them giggle! The fun begins with the Gigglers -- a rascally bunch of elf-like creatures who look after children to make sure adults are being fair to them. Whenever adults are mean to kids -- be it by sending them to bed without supper, lying to them, or even making them wear clothes they hate -- they get the Giggler Treatment: poo on the shoe! In this deliciously rude, irreverent, and silly tale, a man's cookie tasting job takes a stinky turn when the Gigglers decide to take matters into their own hands. But this time, the Gigglers have made a mistake. Can the Treatment be stopped before Mister Mack takes that last, fateful smelly step?

Every parent steps in dog poo every once in a while, but do you know why this happens? The reason for this stinky prank is that if your parent or any adult is ever mean to you or any child the gigglers, three small ,fuzzy creatures, sneakily set a chunk of fresh dog poo underneath their foot right for it to squish all over their nice, squeaky -clean shoe. Like your parents and many others this probably happens quite frequently, especially to Mister Mack. Mister Mack works at a biscuit testing factory testing biscuit after biscuit after biscuit, all day long. Then he takes a pleasant walk home around supper time. One day Mister Mack was taking his usual sluggish walk to work and right beneath his foot was a nice fresh chunk of dog poo, because of his disciplining the night before. I liked this book because of its hilarious humor. The vocabulary of the book is my favorite though because of its Irish terminology. I thought this was a good book although I wish it would be a bit longer because it's really short. This book is for kids around ages 5-9. Although this book is for children younger than me, I give it four stars ( ) out of five. I gave it four stars because when I was a small child it was my favorite book to read before I went to bed, but I have kind of grown out of it now.

I Okay. I admit it. Gigglers aren¿t real but they make the story funny! And that¿s just why I (Michael Davis) like The Giggler Treatment! Mr. Mack is about to step in poo(p) and its up to the rest of his idiotic family to save his shoes! I recommend it because it¿s funny! I would tell you what the Gigglers are but if you want to know then read the book! (Whoops! I almost forgot! 8 and 9 year olds that like comedy will love this book because it¿s funny!)

This book is about these little creatures, called Gigglers, who make sure that they punish any parent or adult that is mean to a child. If this does accur then they will find a big pile of dog poo and place it in their path, but they do it so fast that the adult never sees them do it. This book is very hilarious and humurous, you can't put it down. I know that I got yelled at a couple of times for reading too late in the night, but hopefully you won't do that. I definately recommend this book to those who enjoy jokes and are up for a funny story, cause book is 100% fun and jokes. Have fun reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm in fifth grade and even though it is a young reader book I still loved the ...Talking Cream Crackers, the seagull who hated fish, Kayla, Mr. Mack, Robby and Jimmy. The gigglers are on the mission to get Mr. Mack to step in the poo. The adorable Kayla says Aba throughout the whole book but everyone seems to understand her. When you read this book you'll be in for a real treat!!

I read this one to my 4th grade class and they went nuts. Revenge on adults, dog poo, talking cream crackers, a talking seagull who hates fish; it was awesome! The Irish dictionary in the back was a great idea!

I laughed all the way through this book. I gave it as a gift to my 10 year old nephew. I read it to my 3rd and 4th graders. The gigglers are just what the librarian ordered. Finally, a funny book that was literate. This book should make everyones holiday list for children of all ages!
