The author of Classic Rhymes for Kiwi Kids brings a uniquely local flavour to this much-loved tale!
Award-winning author Peter Millett (The Anzac Puppy) and acclaimed cartoonist Shaun Yeo re imagine this classic tale with a kiwi twist! Once upon a time, an old couple who loved baking fresh biscuits discover a recipe for an ANZAC Biscuit Man. Later that morning they hear a cry coming from the oven, ‘Let me out! Let me out! It’s hotter than a barbecue in here…’ They open the oven and out jumped the ANZAC Biscuit Man!
‘Get in behind!’ bellowed the old man. ‘I want to dunk you in my tea and gobble you all up’. The ANZAC Biscuit Man turned and laughed at the old man. ‘Rattle your dags as fast as you can. You can’t dunk me, I’m the ANZAC Biscuit Man’.
And so begins a hilarious chase, as every man and his horse tries their best to dunk the deliciously cheeky ANZAC Biscuit Man! Can anyone catch this cheeky, baked runaway?
PETER MILLETT is the author of Classic Rhymes for Kiwi Kids, More Classic Rhymes for Kiwi Kids, the Johnny Danger DIY Spy series (Penguin Books Australia) and the Boy Hero Wannabe Zero series (Faber & Faber, UK). Based in Auckland, he makes a living writing children’s books and educational readers.
