Mr Biff the Boxer, Paperback


This is a brand new, bigger, edition of an Ahlberg Happy Families classic.

Mr Biff and Mr Bop are boxers and deadly rivals too.

Mr Bop is fit and lean and Mr Biff...Well, Mr Biff likes a cream cake or two.

Will he ever be able to toughen up in time for the annual charity match.

Gulp! Janet and Allan Ahlberg's Happy Families series is full of wonderful and funny books, perfect for children learning to read.

This new, bigger, edition means that even younger children can enjoy the stories.

Look out for Mrs Wobble the Waitress, too! Allan Ahlberg, a former teacher, postman, plumber's mate and grave digger, is in the super-league of children's writers.

He has published over 100 children's books and, with his late wife Janet, created such award winning picture books as Each Peach Pear Plum and The Jolly Postman - both winners of the Kate Greenaway Medal.
