David O’Doherty is an award-winning comedian and author of the bestselling Danger is Everywhere series. His latest book is a hilarious and heartwarming adventure with a madcap robbery, plenty of sheep and a summer of discoveries. Expect anarchic humour, rib-tickling readings and audience participation. 

Rex’s parents have split up, he’s about to make the scary move to secondary school, and to make matters worse he has to spend his summer holiday on a remote and rainy Irish island – with lots of sheep for company. The only upside: he’ll be staying with his strange and brilliant Uncle, Derm. Then Rex discovers Uncle Derm is about to execute his most hair-brained plan yet – he’s going to rob the island’s travelling bank! 


David O’Doherty is a stand-up comedian, writer and regular guest on television shows such as QI, Have I Got News For You and Would I Lie To You? He has written two theatre shows for children, including one where he fixed their bicycles live on stage.
