The Perky Pranksters series
The Pranksters Genie, Dapper and Rex
The cats Genie and Dapper are now 16 years old and have lived with Selma and her family since they were just kittens. Over the years they have become an inspiration for the countless adventures and pranks which are described in the books. Eight years ago Rex the dog became a welcome addition to the family and now romps through the pages of the books, taking part in all the fun, games and tricks.
