Flour Babies Signed

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Dust jacket is in a good condition with some minor wear to it. There is foxing to the page edges, and some to some of the pages, there is a pencil inscription on the free endpaper including attempted rubbing out marks. The book has also been signed.

The annual school science fair has finally come back around, and Mr Cartright's class has been given the flour babies, much to their horror and disgust. Join Simon Martin as he shows the enthusiasm he shows for most of his work, which is barely any at all. Will he learn something valuable through this experiment such as the pressures of young parenthood? Lose yourself in this tale to find out.
