What happens when ashes from a deceased bull terrier get into the mix for a papier-mache glove puppet? Freddie now has a possessed puppet on his hands with sharp teeth, a fierce attitude and an unpredictable mouth! A boy and a talking doggie-glove-puppet form a hilarious double a...ct, but are Freddie and Masher biting off more than they can chew? A warm and funny novel for 9 years and up. Twelve-year-old Freddie Foxworthy just wants to do arts and crafts. He finds them a lot easier to deal with than his peers, and far more rewarding. His latest self-directed project is to create the perfect glove puppet from papier-mache and home-made glue. But when ashes from his metal-head neighbour's deceased bull terrier get into the mix, he finds he has accidentally made a growling puppet with an unpredictable mouth! But where a possessed puppet can bring fame, it can also bring plenty of trouble. And Freddie already has an overload of mysteries to solve - what (or whom) 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 a warm and funny novel about animal friendships, family and community, imaginary friends, perceived enemies, and finding your happy place. No dogs or papier-mache were harmed in the making of this book.
