" ...Three police cars drove in through the school gates, their blue lights flashing urgently. Had there been an accident? A break-in, perhaps? Or had something more sinister brought out the law in such force?"

" ...Dear Diary, Two weeks to our first show. Scareeeee! Local paper turns up just as Superpets arrive to audition. Charlie`s break-dancing Jack Russell bites photographer who has to have a tetanus jab. Why did we start this...? "

" ...Dimaggio showed no remorse as a photographer was knocked to the ground. Ollie held the video-phone as high as he could, trying to keep pace as the star`s shaven head pushed aggressively through the forest of cameras and microphones."
