Reggie the Stuntman by Kate Shannon
Published by HarperCollins, 1998
ISBN 0-00-675357-4
Illustrations © Kate Shannon, 1998

Reggie the Stuntman from the Collins Colour Jets series is a great story to engage the imagination. All stories in this series are full of action, adventure, crazy incidents and unusual characters.

Reggie and his stunt cat Tallulah may not be famous but they get their pictures taken with all the stars. When Rathbone D. Hammond phones from his office in L.A. it’s all systems go again for these two movie heroes. Previous films Reggie has worked on provide the clues to the mystery of the missing director and the solution to finding him.

Colour Jets offer an excellent variety of text presentation to sustain the young reader’s interest from page to page. Comic-style speech bubbles mixed together with traditional lines of writing, and striking illustrations which sometimes provide the background for the entire page, make this series one of the best for beginner readers.
