Time Off: BOOK WORM.

Little Yellow Dog Bites the Builder, by Francesca Simon, pounds 4.99 (Dolphin)WHO'Dhave thought Frances a Simon would have been able to top her bestselling character -the truly awful Horrid Henry?

But she has with a truly love able canine creature -Little Yellow Dog.

Little Yellow Dog is an inquisitive little mutt who,along with his friends, seems to go out looking for trouble ...and finds it.

This new series includes Little Yellow Dog meets His Match,Little Yellow Dog says Look At Me and Little Yellow Dog Gets A Shock.

In this tale,however,Little Yellow Dog and his pals,Ginger Cat and Bad Rabbit, run for cover when they hear banging and crashing.

LYD, though, is brave enough to creep out and bite the builder . .. then he finds out what all the biffing and bashing was for . ..

With fun illustrations by James Lucas and effective type sizes,it's a really cute giggler of a book.

The Fish In Room 11,by Heather Dyer, pounds 5.99(TheChicken House)HEATHER Dyer has had a few jobs --cherry picker,chambermaid, teacher,cook and sweet- shop assistant to name but a few.

But she always dreamt of being an author and those dreams have been realised in this.

And,if I tell you that it's already won the praise of our own much loved author Shirley Hughes -she said:``This is the kind of readable, funny story I would have loved at the age of eight, and I can't wait to share it with my grandchildren'' -then you know you are in for a treat. It tells the story of Toby, a lonely boy who was abandoned in a seaside hotel as a baby.

The adventures begin when he meets a pale, thingirl,lying at the water's edge-with her long green tail swaying gently in the shallow water.

The story is imaginative and fresh, lively and yet gentle too.
