Call Me Drog

Publisher: Usborne Publishing

Parker thinks nothing of plucking an old hand-puppet out of the rubbish but he soon realises he’s made a big mistake. Drog is no ordinary puppet and he’s not planning to leave Parker’s hand anytime soon. Things get even worse when Drog begins to share his very candid opinions - loudly! Parker needs to face up to some difficult truths and find a way to escape from Drog before he alienates everyone Parker cares about.

As Drog gains power and tension builds, Cowing raises some intriguing questions about the challenges we face to live with integrity, examining the trials of adolescence from an original angle. Both alarming and memorable, readers will race through this absorbing novel, yet Cowing’s message will stay with them long after they turn the final page.
