Let your child learn how to empathise with a biscuit. This is the story of a little bear-shaped biscuit who escapes into the kitchen in the middle of the night and bakes himself a circusful of friends. The arrival of Bongo the dog turns Biscuit Bear's circus into a Guernica - but the little bear himself escapes to a secure location. Mini Grey has a genius in storytelling with dark humour and illustrates her own work (no one else could). This is my favourite of all her books. My kids were so taken with it they started making little biscuit bears of their own. Ideal for ages 2-4.
