MISTER BISCUIT’S BOOK
for readers aged 2+
‘Mister Biscuit Writes a Book’ is a series of small read-aloud books in the shape of a petit-beurre biscuit. The series is kicked off by a larger picture book.
Mister Biscuit is celebrating his 100th birthday, and is writing a book chronicling all of his adventures. His friends try to get rid of certain pages of the book, but that is not as easy as it sounds.
This small cardboard booklet, ideal for eager toddler hands, is the fictional result of Mister Biscuit's writings!
The text and visual humour are tailor-made for children of four years and up. The most charming aspects of this colourful series lie in the details; of the countless visual jokes, some are no bigger than a square centimetre. Anyone with the patience to look for them all will be kept happy for hours by this series.
