Mr McGee and the Big Bag of Bread



 Mr McGee and the Big Bag of Bread

Written and illustrated by Pamela Allen

Amazon Link: £12.99 (import)










A cautionary (and sometimes quite gory) tale of a happy go lucky man and an eventful trip to the zoo. Mr McGee takes a big bag of bread with him to visit the animals - and pays no heed to the notice boards. What bounces this book along is the fantastic flow of the verses, and the clear and superbly illustrated panels that seem to stretch from one end of the book to the other in one continuous image.

Your child can join in with the repeated warnings of "DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS!" 

Charlotte's best bit: The rather gory parrot incident!
