What is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time about?
Based on Mark Haddon’s worldwide, best-selling novel, the story follows a fifteen-year-old boy, Christopher, who discovers his neighbours’ dead dog. Mrs Shears’ dog isn’t just dead though but has been speared with a garden fork, and at precisely seven minutes past midnight. However, when Christopher is found standing over the dog’s body, he is held under suspicion. Christopher knows it wasn’t him and makes it his mission to solve the case! He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at maths, although struggles with his perceptions on everyday life. Forbidden by his father to carry out his detective work, Christopher must embark on this frightening venture alone, despite never having been to the end of his road alone.
