“No More Biscuits” – a cute book for littlies & we made the Magic Monkey Bananas

No-more-biscuits-web

No More Biscuits is a sweet book by Paeony Lewis which is aimed at preschoolers – 6 year olds.  Florence and her stuffed Monkey, Arnold, try anything to get “just one more biscuit”, sound familiar?  It’s a cute story about how they try all sorts of things to get another biscuit and Mum holds the line at NO through out some very imaginative negotiation tactics.  No wins out in the end but some “Magic Monkey Bananas” are made instead – the recipe is included at the back of the book and we have tried it out ourselves to great success!

Here is a link through to The Book Depository where you could buy your own copy if you like.* And here is what happened when we made ours!

    “Just one more biscuit” sounds very familiar – except for this Easter weekend I can replace “biscuit” with “chocolate”! This sounds like a lovely book and I love how they even included a recipe at the end. Bravo on your own magic monkey bananas. Considering there were sprinkles and kids involved, it looks very clean!
