Synopsis

Biscuit Bear by Mini Grey

When Horace bakes a biscuit in the shape of a bear, little does he know that his edible treat is going to turn into Biscuit Bear! For in the middle of the night, when all is quiet, that is exactly what happens, and Biscuit Bear decides that it is time he made some friends of his own. So, with flour, sugar and butter he does just that. In fact, he makes a whole circus of friends and the fun begins . . .

Reviews

In this charming tale told from the biscuit's point of view, Mini Grey creates a hugely satisfying night-world where fear can be seen off and a biscuit can change its chances in life * Guardian * Enjoyable as much for the witty innocence of the pictures as the barking-mad originality of the prose * Independent * Mini Grey, one of the brightest stars on the picture-book scene, seems to be incapable of producing a dull word or picture . . . Grey's text is beautifully matched by her clever visual jokes and inventive changes of perspective * Financial Times * Visually scrumptious, a flavoursome mix of wit and skill * The Sunday Times * A star turn * Observer *

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
