What is the Giggler Treatment? If adults are mean to children, they get the Giggler Treatment. If they send a child to bed without their supper, or if they frighten a child, they get the Giggler Treatment. If they are ever rude to a child or make them wear clothes that they hate they get the Giggler Treatment...

Mr Mack is a good, caring man. And he's about to walk right into a fate he doesn't deserve. Last night, Mr Mack sent his children to bed without their supper for breaking a kitchen window. Later, he apologised, called the boys back down and made them their favourite dinner - but the Gigglers don't know that, and they've set Mr Mack up for the Giggler Treatment.

The Giggler Treatment has been around since the dawn of time, and can be summed up in four simple words: "poo on the shoe". Can Mr Mack's children - not to mention Rover, the amazing dog - save him from impending disaster?

The Giggler Treatment is one of those CDs that children will love and adults will tut at. Why? Well, mainly because dog poo is a major subject matter in this release. That's one of the punishments with the Giggler Treatment. The little people purchase dog poo from dogs, and then place it somewhere where they know their victim will step into it.

The opening to this story sees the little people waiting anxiously, counting down the steps, until their victim steps in the poo... but, little do they know that this unsuspecting adult doesn't actually deserve the Giggler Treatment.

This CD takes an amusing slant on the world as kids see it. It explains why dogs really bury bones in their owner's back yards, and why being a biscuit tester is not always as exciting as it at first sounds. I loved the amusing asides as each chapter was introduced.

Basically, this is a release that any mischievous little boy or girl should listen to. A hoot from beginning to end.
