Brian the Giant

A new title in the extremely popular Starters series for beginner readers. Brian the Giant loves eating muffins - but he hates making them. When his muffins keep disappearing, he sets a trap for the muffin thieves involving black pepper to make them sneeze! He soon discovers that the mice who live under his clock are the culprits and strikes a deal with them - if they will bake some muffins, they can all share them, then they will all be happy!; Using several different types of text - from signposts and speech bubbles to recipes - the Starters series fits guidelines in the National Literacy Strategy, which recommends using different media to teach children to read.
