Review Text

Enjoyable as much for the witty innocence of the pictures as the barking-mad originality of the prose

Review quote

A star turn * Observer * Visually scrumptious, a flavoursome mix of wit and skill * The Sunday Times * 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 * Enjoyable as much for the witty innocence of the pictures as the barking-mad originality of the prose * Independent * 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 *

Our customer reviews

This is a deliciously funny picture book about a biscuit bear who literally 'makes new friends'. It is slightly too old for my 26 month old daughter, but she will undoubtedly grow into it soon. I am looking forward to purchasing more of Mini Grey's books for my daughters.show more
