Mr Biff the Boxer

Publisher: Puffin

Review

Mr Biff and Mr Bop are boxers and it will soon be time for their annual charity boxing match. Mr Bop is very fit, but Mr Biff has been eating too many cream cakes, drinking too much beer and lazing in his armchair.

Can his loving family get him fit and tough enough to put up a good fight?

His children make him do lots of training and his wife puts him on a strict diet. Soon he is fit as a fiddle.

The Ahlbergs' funny and classic Happy Families story is now available in a larger format. Ideal for newly independent readers, it packs in messages about family, friendship and how silly it is to fight.
