Mince Pies become action heroes in this laugh-out-loud new picture book from Mark Sperring and Sophie Corrigan. Following in the footsteps of The Day the Crayons Quit, Traction Man and Supertato, the book brings plenty of hilarity and a festive twist on the popular theme of everyday objects brought to life and getting into all kinds of unlikely mishaps.
Christmas is almost here but all is not calm and bright in the world of the Mince Spies. Somebody or something has been visiting all the supermarkets in town and smashing up the Christmas treats. Soon, every delicious cake, iced biscuit and Christmas pudding is under threat as festive goodies are reported to have been thrown from the shelves and destroyed into a mixed-up sugary mess.
Is there anybody who can track down the culprit? This is clearly a job for the Mince Spies, who are sent on a mission to keep watch over the supermarket shelves and catch whoever is responsible for trying to ruin Christmas. With a little help from puff-pastry jetpacks, shortcrust walkie-talkies and Santa Claus himself, the Mince Spies set to work and find a way to restore Christmas cheer.
A whimsical and enjoyable festive read that will guarantee giggles from young children. Set in rhyme and brought to life with bright and bold illustrations by Sophie Corrigan, this is a super book to share with EYFS and KS1 in the run-up to Christmas.
