What, you might well ask, is the Giggler Treatment? Better yet, what precisely is a Giggler? You won't find out until chapter 6 of Roddy Doyle's The Giggler Treatment, but for those of you who can't wait, here's the answer: Gigglers are "baby-sized and furry. Their fur changes color as they move." Their main occupation in life is to look after children and to punish adults who are mean or unfair to them. And the Treatment? Four words: "Poo on the shoe."

The Gigglers have always been there. Since the first dog did its first poo. Since the first caveman grunted at his first cavechild. He stomped out of the cave, straight onto a huge lump of prehistoric poo.
In his first children's book, Roddy Doyle, prize-winning author of such adult fare as Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, The Barrytown Trilogy, and A Star Called Henry, gives free literary rein to his inner child. The result may surprise his older readers, but is guaranteed to please the Captain Underpants set with its frequent good-humored references to poo, rudies, bums, and other body parts and functions. Doyle bases his tale on a dreadful misunderstanding: Mr. Mack, a biscuit tester in a biscuit factory sends his sons to their rooms without supper for breaking a window. This piece of unfairness naturally warrants the Treatment, and so the Gigglers immediately rush next door to collect a walloping great lump of poo from a neighboring Irish wolfhound. Unfortunately, they aren't present when Mr. Mack repents. When the children later find out their father is headed into deep doo-doo, it becomes a race against time to save him from poo on the shoe.

Doyle takes this slightest of plots and piles on plenty of whimsy, from a talking dog to a race across Dublin via the Nile River and the Eiffel Tower. Chapter titles have names like "Chapter Something," "Another Chapter," and "The Chapter After the Last One"; there are frequent digressions into topics such as mountain climbing and the love life of Irish wolfhounds; the illustrations are fun; and there's an amusing glossary at the end that translates some of the Britishisms ("Plaster--Band Aid. Very useful if you are bleeding to death"). This good-natured romp through a comedic territory beloved by children (and more than a few grownups) will surely win the author whole new legions of fans. Indeed, it's highly unlikely that Mr. Doyle will ever have to worry about falling victim to the Giggler Treatment himself. (Ages 9 and older) --Petra Williams -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Ich habe das Buch mit meiner Klasse gelesen und eine "criticism" geschrieben, welche ich hier gerne veröffentlichen würde :-)

The Gigglers Treatment - Criticism

"The Gigglers Treatment" is the first book of Roddy Doyle for children. Before that he always writes books only for adults.

I really like this book because it is very funny and not scary but I don`t like it because it is often very unrealistic. I think Roddy Dolye can write exciting and interesting books for children and young persons. When it I could give the book a mark I would give "very good".

I would also recommend the book to other children. The gigglers are really funny and look like mice and they always wear caps. Furthermore, they have funny teeth and very funny ears. That's why the book is funny, too.

We took turns reading it out loud, we often had to stop to let the girls (8 and 10) finish laughing and repeating the lines. This dog-poo humour trilogy is great fun. The 10-year-old always put down her Harry Potter to listen in to her sister's reading session.

Eine wunscherschön geschriebene Phantasiegeschichte. Kein Hundehaufen wird mehr als ein normales Endprodukt gesehen, it turns into "the giggler treatment". Einfach und Lustig im Alltag unserer heutigen Zeit geschrieben. Leider passiert die Geschichte nicht in Deutschland, sondern vielmehr in Irland; aber es gibt ja Gott sei Dank auch beruftätige Väter mit Hund und Kinder in Deutschland.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent!!!!!! 18. November 2015
Von KHH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

My 6 year old loves this book. The premise of the book is that little creatures called gigglers exist and their job it to look out for children. If they see an adult mistreating a child, then that adult will get the "giggler treatment." The first time we read this together, I did all the reading, and my son wouldn't let me put it down. We were both laughing out loud. The next night, he wanted to read it again, only this time my son read it to me. The phrase "the giggler treatment" has now become fairly common in our everyday conversation. I love that this book made reading fun for my son who has really struggled with learning to read. It was the very first time he picked up a book on his own and wanted to read it out loud.

Clever, silly tale for kids! Lots of pictures and silly rambling story that my daughter truly enjoyed. I look forward to purchasing more of Doyle's work.

My kids LOVED this book. Now they are 22 and 16 and to this day they will say it was their favorite that I ever read to them. So funny. So outrageous! Thank you Mr. Doyle for the memories made with my children.
And if you're going to read it to your kids, you must give the gigglers voices. I insist. :)

Wonderful book. Used to read this to my daughter when she was young. She's now in college, and wanted some of her favorite books. This one was long ago given away, so I had to buy it again. Just looking at the cover makes me smile. R. Doyle has written more popular books, but none better than this one. Fantastic read!
